Lincoln Memorial statue takes rare day off for President's Day


Washington, D.C. - It's been a little over 100 years since the Lincoln Memorial was completed, and visitors began paying tribute to the 16th U.S. President.


Through that entire century, there have only been two times that the statue took time off: Christmas Day 1944 and today.


According to a sign posted outside the monument, the 19 feet tall sculpture is taking a "Me Day" and plans to return on Tuesday.


One visitor told reporters, "Of course, I'm disappointed not to see him, but he deserves a day off. It is President's Day."


It is unclear why the president chose to take time off or how he will spend the day. One witness claims he saw him at a local Starbucks, trying to get through the door.
