Presidents’ Day: day when we celebrate the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, and go to amazing sales instead of boring school. Whatever you spend your Presidents’ Day doing, remember what Miss Julia Coleman used to say: “One of you could become the President of the United States!” But before that happens, you need a name worthy of the POTUS title.
First Name: Choose the name that corresponds to the state you’d most like to visit. (All of these are home states presidents.)
New Hampshire: Millard/Florence
New Jersey: Zachary/Grace
New York: Abraham/Claudia
North Carolina: Theodore/Eliza
Middle Name: Choose the name that corresponds to your favorite presidential campaign slogan.
Yes We Can (Barack Obama): Knox/Virginia
Where’s the Beef (Walter Mondale): Fitzgerald/Geneva
It’s the economy, stupid. (Bill Clinton): Delano/Lavinia
All the way with LBJ (Lyndon B. Johnson): Baines/Angelica
I like Ike (Dwight D. Eisenhower): Birchard/Clara
Keep Cool and Keep Coolidge (Calvin Coolidge): Earl/Mabel
Vote as You Shot (Ulysses S. Grant): Grover/Lane
Tippecanoe and Tyler too (Williams Henry Harrison/John Tyler): Rudolph/Rebecca
Give Em Hell, Harry! (Harry Truman): Gamaliel/Alta
Roosevelt for Ex-President (Wendell Wilkie): Ulysses/Rosalynn
Don’t Swap Horses in Midstream (Abraham Lincoln/FDR): Milhous/Diane
AUH2O (Barry Goldwater): Quincy/Louise
Last Name: Choose the name that corresponds to the type of pet you’d have if you were president. (All of these types of animals have been Presidential Pets! Some of the weirder pets were those of Calvin Coolidge’s children, who practically had their own zoo. Many were also gifts from foreign countries, like Martin Van Buren’s tigers that Congress made him send to a zoo.)
