    At the time the last double bonus points was offered for DDO they had triple bonus points on LOTRO.

    US holiday. They used to give us Lincoln and Washington birthdays as holidays when I was a kid. They combined those into one day now and call it "President's day" that happens to be on o Monday near Washington's birthday.

    Washington's Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States.

    It is also a state holiday in most states where it is known by a variety of names including Presidents Day and Washington's and Lincoln's Birthday and officially celebrates, depending upon the state, Washington alone, Washington and Lincoln, or some other combination of U.S. presidents.[1] Some states celebrate Washington and the third president Thomas Jefferson but not Lincoln.[1]

    Colloquially, the holiday is widely known as "Presidents Day" and is often an occasion to celebrate, or at least remember, all presidents and not just George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.[1]

    Both Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays are in February.

    Aside from the historical significance of honoring Washington and Lincoln's contributions to American society, it's also an excuse for people to go shopping if one can take any indication from the large sales going on all over the place. Most of my countrymen really seem to love shopping to celebrate things. LOL

    Also this year, I believe, tomorrow is ddo's birthday. So having points up the day before and then doing something for tomorrow would be weird.

    And marketers. Our national holidays are defined in the U.S. Code.

    It's the day when we buy mattersses and reclining chairs. We used to celebrate George Washington's and Abraham Lincoln's birthdays, but it seems to have become national matress buying day.

    I think Washington and Lincoln use to be seperate. To make room for MLK they combined the Presidents' into one holiday.

    Not sure what Mississippi does about Lincoln because that is no longer specific. What about MLK birthday? Cause that is federal law.

    Federal holidays apply to federal employees. The states choose which holidays they will observe.

    Lincoln's Birthday was never a federal holiday, but it is a state holiday in some states.
