All over the U.S., employees take off Presidents Day in honor of George Washington’s birthday. I always thought it was to honor both Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Wikipedia says it’s not official, but is commonplace. I guess employers would miss us all too much to give us both days off of work.

At Benchmark Email, we believe our customer support representatives are the Presidents of Being Awesome and Helpful. They have a flag and are in talks to join the United Nations. On Presidents Day, we give them the day off to honor their hard work and general greatness.

On Monday, February 20, we will have phone support from 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM PST. Email and chat support will be available from 6:00 AM – 3:00 PM PST. We appreciate your understanding.

And don’t forget to use a Presidents Day email template!
