Presidents’ Day, a national holiday that honors President George Washington and President Abraham Lincoln, will be celebrated on February 15th of 2021. Many people celebrate Presidents’ Day by eating cherry pie, which legend tells us was Washington’s favorite dessert. There is another legend about cherry trees and young George.
“The cherry tree myth is the most well-known and longest enduring legend about George Washington. In the original story, when Washington was six years old he received a hatchet as a gift and damaged his father’s cherry tree. When his father discovered what he had done, he became angry and confronted him. Young George bravely said, “I cannot tell a lie…I did cut it with my hatchet.” Washington’s father embraced him and rejoiced that his son’s honesty was worth more than a thousand trees.”
