"Presidents Day," or, "Presidents' Day?"

0

What is the proper punctuation of the holiday? "President's Day," is wrong because it is not singular possesive. Is the holiday possesive at all?

I'd argue that no apostrophe is needed. It doesn't belong to a group of presidents or any one president. Rather, the day was designated to honor all U.S. Presidents, and this is therefore a name: Presidents Day (a day to honor presidents).
