Here's what is open and closed on Presidents Day in metro Atlanta

Monday, Feb. 18, will be Presidents Day, Washington’s Birthday or just another day, depending on where you live and work. 

For the federal government, it is Washington’s Birthday, and all federal offices are closed. For banks, schools and many businesses, it is Presidents Day and a day off work.  For most private sector workers, it’s just another day, though with a slight hassle if you’re caught unaware and try to go to the post office. 

And the state of Georgia? Well, Presidents Day is an official holiday and day off for state workers, but it will be observed on Dec. 24 this year.
