How Abraham Lincoln Lost His Birthday Holiday

Holiday Fanart Shows Plenty of Heart

According to one blog that tracks the holiday, in 1940 24 states and the District Of Columbia observed Lincolns Birthday. Now, after the Uniform Monday Holiday Act was passed in 1971 and states moved toward considering the federal Washington-birthday holiday as Presidents Day, there are just a handful of states that honor Lincoln directly. The states that currently have Lincoln-birthday holidays on February 12 include Illinois (Lincolns adopted home state), Connecticut, Missouri, and New York. In 2009, California decided to end its official paid Lincoln-birthday holiday for state employees. (It also cut Columbus Day.) Indiana also recognizes Lincolns birthday but observes it on the day after Thanksgiving. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.philly.com/philly/news/nation_world/How_Abraham_Lincoln_lost_his_birthday_holiday.html

In honor of the recent holiday, Heart Tres presents a series of characters in a 3x3 grid (some don't conform to that parameter) creating a heart shape with arm gestures. <br>For the original version including any supplementary images or video, visit http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2014/02/15/holiday-fanart-shows-plenty-of-heart
