Knowing The Gettysburg Address Can Get You A Ticket At Mountain Creek, New Jersey

As we approach the Presidents' Day and the Presidents' Week holiday time, we as skiers and snowboarders take advantage of the time off from work or school and hit the slopes. Yes, the winter holidays are truly wonderful. Also wonderful, knowing a little bit of presidential history can score you a free day ticket at Mountain Creek in Northern New Jersey.

Part of this holiday comes from President Abraham Lincoln's birthday being February 12th. On that same day, to celebrate Honest Abe's birthday, you can head out to Mountain Creek, recite Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and you'll win a free day ticket.
