The article focuses on the bill passed in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania which is designed to bring reforms in the observance of certain holidays. The bill provided for the abolition of the Washington's Birthday and the birthday of former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln to form a new holiday called President's Day. Moreover, Memorial day will now be celebrated in the last Monday of May, The Fourth of July on July 6th, and the Thanksgiving Day to the fourth Monday of November.
