President’s Day Parade

I didn’t celebrate President’s Day yesterday. I don’t mean that I didn’t have the day off (I did), or that I didn’t see a parade (I did), or that I wasn’t patriotic (I was). It’s just that in Virginia, they keep the original spirit of the day. They celebrate George Washington Day, in honor of his birthday.

In Old Town Alexandria I saw bands, floats, wagons, horses, and historical reenactments. It was the “largest parade celebrating George Washington’s birthday in the USA”… wonder where is there a larger one outside of the country?
