Moving Holidays in the United States


Shifting holidays to Mondays

Public HolidaysA special feature goes back to President Richard Nixon in 1971, who during his term in office moved most national holidays to the nearest Monday. Thus, a public holiday is also a day off work for large parts of the population. This does not, of course, include anniversaries such as Independence Day, New Year's Day or Christmas, which by their nature cannot be celebrated on other days. Despite the dates set by the federal government, the individual U.S. states have wide-ranging freedom in scheduling. Each state can arbitrarily move a holiday for its territory or even skip it altogether. For example, President's Day is not celebrated in 11 states. Columbus Day is also celebrated in only 34 states. In addition, there are countless dates for regional holidays.

Independence Day

Probably the best known U.S. holiday from numerous movies is Independence Day on July 4. This day dates back to 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed. In it, the name "United States of America" was also recorded for the first time, to which the previous 13 British colonies united. The USA did not receive its legal existence until about 12 years later with the adoption of the Constitution. Nevertheless, 1776 is considered the year of its founding. Today, the day is celebrated throughout the country with picnics, parades and fireworks. In many places, things are much more patriotic than in Europe, for example. Countless U.S. flags bathe entire streets in a sea of white, red and blue.

Thanksgiving

While in most parts of the world the Thanksgiving holiday is celebrated almost exclusively in rural areas, in the USA there is a real hustle and bustle on the fourth Thursday in November. Originally proclaimed by George Washington in 1789, the holiday was still celebrated on October 3 until 1862. It was not until Abraham Lincoln that Thanksgiving Day was moved to the day at the end of November. The reason for this move was purely economic: the additional bridging day on the following Friday and the extended weekend at the beginning of the Christmas season were intended to boost sales. As a result, the day known today as Black Friday came into being, on which retailers overflowed with discounts.

Federal holidays in the United States

Holidays designated by the U.S. government

This article is about federal government holidays. For other uses, see Federal holidays in the United States (disambiguation).

A federal holiday in the United States is a calendar date that is designated by the U.S. government as a holiday. Every year on a U.S. federal holiday, non-essential federal governmentoffices are closed, stock markettrading is usually suspended, and every federal government employee is paid for the holiday. There are a total of 11 federal holidays.

Federal holidays are designated by the United States Congress in Title V of the United States Code (5 U.S.C. § 6103).[1] Congress only has authority to create holidays for federal institutions (including federally-owned properties), employees, and the District of Columbia. Although not required, as a general rule of courtesy, other institutions, such as banks, businesses, and schools may be closed on federal holidays. In various parts of the country, state and city holidays may be observed concurrently with federal holidays.

History[edit]

The history of federal holidays in the United States dates back to June 28, 1870, when Congress created federal holidays "to correspond with similar laws of States around the District ... and ... in every State of the Union."[2] Although at first applicable only to federal employees in the District of Columbia, Congress extended coverage in 1885 to all federal employees.

The original four holidays were:

  • New Year's Day
  • Independence Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

George Washington's Birthday became a federal holiday in 1879. In 1888 and 1894, respectively, Decoration Day (now Memorial Day) and Labor Day were created. In 1938, Armistice Day (now Veterans Day) was created to mark the end of World War I. The scope and the name of the holiday was expanded in 1954 to honor Americans who fought in World War II and the Korean War.

In 1968, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act shifted several holidays to always fall on a Monday and saw the establishment of Columbus Day.

In 1983, Ronald Reagan signed Martin Luther King Jr. Day into law, and it was first observed three years later, although some states resisted. It was finally celebrated by all 50 states in 2000. Senators Jesse Helms of North Carolina and John McCain of Arizona opposed the creation of the federal holiday for the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. when it was approved in the Senate 78-22 in 1983.[3]

Christmas Day as a federal or public holiday is also sometimes objected to by various sources,[4][5][6] usually due to its ties with the Christian religion. In December 1999, the Western Division of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, in the case Ganulin v. United States, denied the charge that Christmas Day's federal status violated the Establishment Clause of the Constitution, ruling that "the Christmas holiday has become largely secularized", and that "by giving federal employees a paid vacation day on Christmas, the government is doing no more than recognizing the cultural significance of the holiday".[7][8]

On June 16, 2021, the U.S. Congress passed legislation to make Juneteenth (June 19) a federal holiday. The day commemorates the end of slavery in Texas in 1865. PresidentJoe Biden signed this bill into law on June 17, 2021.[9][10][11][12]

List of federal holidays[edit]

Most of the 11[13] U.S. federal holidays are also state holidays. A holiday that falls on a weekend is usually observed on the closest weekday (e.g. a holiday falling on a Saturday is observed on the preceding Friday, while a holiday falling on a Sunday is observed on the succeeding Monday).[14] The official names come from the statute that defines holidays for federal employees.

Date Official Name[1]Details
January 1
(Fixed)
New Year's DayCelebrates beginning of the Gregorian calendar year. Festivities include counting down to 12:00 midnight on the preceding night, New Year's Eve, often with fireworks display and party. The ball drop at Times Square in New York City has become a national New Year's festivity. Traditional end of Christmas and holiday season.[15]
January 15–21
(Floating Monday)
Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.Honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., civil rights leader, who was actually born on January 15, 1929; combined with other holidays in several states. Some cities and municipalities hold parades; and more recently, the 1994 King Holiday and Service Act, which was passed to encourage Americans to transform the King Holiday into a day of citizen action volunteer service, has gained in popularity (sometimes referred to as a National Day of Service or American Civil Rights Day). The holiday is observed on the third Monday of January.
February 15–21
(Floating Monday)
Washington's BirthdayWashington's Birthday was first declared a federal holiday by an 1879 act of Congress. The Uniform Holidays Act, 1968, shifted the date of the commemoration of Washington's Birthday from February 22 to the third Monday in February (between February 15 and 21, meaning the observed holiday never falls on Washington's actual birthday). Because of this, combined with the fact that President Lincoln's birthday falls on February 12, many people now refer to this holiday as "Presidents' Day" and consider it a day honoring all American presidents. However, neither the Uniform Holidays Act nor any subsequent law changed the name of the holiday from Washington's Birthday to Presidents' Day.[1]
May 25–31
(Floating Monday)
Memorial DayHonors the nation's war dead from the Civil War onwards; marks the unofficial beginning of the summer season. (traditionally May 30, shifted by the Uniform Holidays Act 1968). The holiday is observed on the last Monday in May.
June 19
(Fixed)
Juneteenth National Independence DayCommemorates the anniversary of the date on which emancipation was announced in Texas.
July 4
(Fixed)
Independence DayCelebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence from British rule, also called the Fourth of July. Fireworks celebrations are held in many cities throughout the nation. On the day before this holiday, the stock market trading session ends three hours early.
September 1–7
(Floating Monday)
Labor DayHonors and recognizes the American labor movement. 52% of Americans celebrate Labor Day as the unofficial end of summer,[16] although roughly 40% of employers require some employees to work on the holiday.[17] The holiday is observed on the first Monday in September.
October 8–14
(Floating Monday)
Columbus DayColumbus Day honors Christopher Columbus, whose exploration of the Americas in the years 1492 to 1504 marked the beginning of the European exploration and colonization of the Americas. The holiday is observed on the second Monday in October, and is one of two federal holidays where stock market trading is permitted. In some areas it is instead a celebration of Indigenous Peoples, or Italian culture and heritage; traditionally October 12.
November 11
(Fixed)
Veterans DayHonors all veterans of the United States armed forces. It is observed on November 11 to recall the end of World War I on that date in 1918 (major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 when the Armistice with Germany went into effect); it is one of two federal holidays where stock market trading is permitted.
November 22–28
(Floating Thursday)
Thanksgiving DayTraditionally celebrates the giving of thanks for the autumn harvest. Traditionally includes the sharing of a turkey dinner. The holiday is observed on the fourth Thursday in November. On the day after this holiday, the stock market trading session ends three hours early.
December 25
(Fixed)
Christmas DayThe most widely celebrated holiday of the Christian year, Christmas is observed as a commemoration of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. Commonly celebrated by Christians and non-Christians alike with various traditions. On the day before this holiday, the stock market trading session ends three hours early.

New Year's Day, Juneteenth, Independence Day, Veterans Day, and Christmas Day are observed on the same calendar date each year, irrespective of the day of the week. When a holiday falls on a Saturday, federal employees who work Monday to Friday observe the holiday on the previous Friday. Federal employees who work on Saturday observe the holiday on Saturday and, for them, Friday is a regular work day. Holidays that fall on a Sunday are observed by federal workers the following Monday. The other holidays always fall on a specific day of the week.[14]

Inauguration Day, held on January 20 every four years following a quadrennial presidential election, is considered a paid holiday for federal employees in the Washington, D.C., area by the Office of Personnel Management. However, it is not considered a federal holiday in the United States equivalent to the eleven holidays mentioned above.[18]

Although many states recognize most or all federal holidays as state holidays, the federal government cannot enact laws to compel them to do so. Furthermore, states can recognize other days as state holidays that are not federal holidays. For example, the State of Texas recognizes all federal holidays except Columbus Day, and in addition recognizes the Friday after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and the day after Christmas as state holidays.[19] Furthermore, Texas does not follow the federal rule of closing either the Friday before if a holiday falls on a Saturday, or the Monday after if a holiday falls on a Sunday (offices are open on those Fridays or Mondays), but does have "partial staffing holidays" (such as March 2, which is Texas Independence Day) and "optional holidays" (such as Good Friday).[19]

Private employers also are not required to observe federal or state holidays, the key exception being federally chartered banks. Some private employers, often by a union contract, pay a differential such as time-and-a-half or double-time to employees who work on some federal holidays. However, employees not specifically covered by a union contract might only receive their standard pay for working on a federal holiday, depending on the company policy.

[edit]

Main article: List of observances in the United States by presidential proclamation

Federal law also provides for the declaration of other public holidays by the President of the United States. Generally the president will provide a reasoning behind the elevation of the day, and call on the people of the United States to observe the day "with appropriate ceremonies and activities." Examples of presidentially declared holidays were the days of the funerals for former Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and Gerald Ford; federal government offices were closed and employees given a paid holiday.

Proposed federal holidays[edit]

Many proposed federal holidays have come up over time. According to an article from CBS, federal holidays are generally "expensive" and they only allow federal workers to take the day off. As the U.S. federal government is a large employer, the holidays are expensive. If a holiday is controversial, opposition will generally prevent bills enacting them from passing. For example, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, marking King's birthday, took a lot of effort to pass.[20] And once it did pass, it took more effort for all states to eventually recognize it. It was not until 2000 that this holiday was officially observed in all 50 states.[21]

The following list is an example of holidays that have been proposed and have reasons why they are not observed at the federal level today. Some of these holidays are observed at the state level.

Controversy[edit]

Protests by the Native American community support the abolition of Columbus Day, mainly due to its ideology in forcefully conquering and converting whole populations with another and encouraging imperialism and colonization.[29] Glenn Morris of The Denver Post wrote that Columbus Day "... is not merely a celebration of Columbus the man; it is the celebration of a racist legal and political legacy—embedded in official legal and political pronouncements of the U.S.—such as the doctrine of discovery and manifest destiny."[30]Alaska, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa,[31]Louisiana,[32]Maine, Minnesota,[33]New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina,[34]Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, and Wisconsin do not recognize Columbus Day, though other states such as Hawaii and South Dakota mark the day with an alternative holiday or observance. South Dakota is the only state to recognize Native American Day as an alternate. Hawaii recognizes Discoverer's Day. Other states such as Maine, Nevada, Washington and Wisconsin instead recognize Indigenous Peoples' Day as an alternative holiday.

Holidays in the United States 2021, 2022, 2023

The United States does not have national holidays in the sense of days on which all employees in the U.S. receive a day free from work and all business is halted. The U.S. Federal government can only recognize national holidays that pertain to its own employees. There are eleven such Federal holidays, ten annual and one quadrennial holiday.

The annual Federal holidays are widely observed by state and local governments; however, they may alter the dates of observance or add or subtract holidays according to local custom. Pursuant to the Uniform Holidays Bill of 1968, official holidays are observed on a Monday, except for New Year's Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. There are also U.S. state holidays particular to individual U.S. states.

Most retail businesses close on Thanksgiving and Christmas, but remain open on all other holidays. Private businesses often observe only the "big six" holidays (New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas). Some also add the Friday after Thanksgiving, or one or more of the other federal holidays.

Federal holidays in the United States

Holidays designated by the U.S. government

This article is about federal government holidays. For other uses, see Federal holidays in the United States (disambiguation).

A federal holiday in the United States is a calendar date that is designated by the U.S. government as a holiday. Every year on a U.S. federal holiday, non-essential federal governmentoffices are closed, stock markettrading is usually suspended, and every federal government employee is paid for the holiday. There are a total of 11 federal holidays.

Federal holidays are designated by the United States Congress in Title V of the United States Code (5 U.S.C. § 6103).[1] Congress only has authority to create holidays for federal institutions (including federally-owned properties), employees, and the District of Columbia. Although not required, as a general rule of courtesy, other institutions, such as banks, businesses, and schools may be closed on federal holidays. In various parts of the country, state and city holidays may be observed concurrently with federal holidays.

History[edit]

The history of federal holidays in the United States dates back to June 28, 1870, when Congress created federal holidays "to correspond with similar laws of States around the District . and . in every State of the Union."[2] Although at first applicable only to federal employees in the District of Columbia, Congress extended coverage in 1885 to all federal employees.

The original four holidays were:

  • New Year's Day
  • Independence Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

George Washington's Birthday became a federal holiday in 1879. In 1888 and 1894, respectively, Decoration Day (now Memorial Day) and Labor Day were created. In 1938, Armistice Day (now Veterans Day) was created to mark the end of World War I. The scope and the name of the holiday was expanded in 1954 to honor Americans who fought in World War II and the Korean War.

In 1968, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act shifted several holidays to always fall on a Monday and saw the establishment of Columbus Day.

In 1983, Ronald Reagan signed Martin Luther King Jr. Day into law, and it was first observed three years later, although some states resisted. It was finally celebrated by all 50 states in 2000. Senators Jesse Helms of North Carolina and John McCain of Arizona opposed the creation of the federal holiday for the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. when it holidays in us 2020 approved in the Senate 78-22 in 1983.[3]

Christmas Day as a federal or public holiday is also sometimes objected to by various sources,[4][5][6] usually due to its ties ach customer service number the Christian religion. In December 1999, the Western Division of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, in the case Ganulin v. United States, denied the charge that Christmas Day's federal status violated the Establishment Clause of the Constitution, ruling that "the Christmas holiday has become largely secularized", and that "by giving federal employees a paid vacation day on Christmas, the government is doing no more than recognizing the cultural significance of the holiday".[7][8]

On June 16, 2021, the U.S. Congress passed legislation to make Juneteenth (June 19) a federal holiday. The day commemorates the end of slavery in Texas in 1865. PresidentJoe Biden signed this bill into law on June 17, 2021.[9][10][11][12]

List of federal holidays[edit]

Most of the 11[13] U.S. federal holidays are also guaranty bank and trust delhi la holidays. A holiday that falls on a weekend is usually observed on the closest weekday (e.g. a holiday falling on a Saturday is observed on the preceding Friday, while a holiday falling on a Sunday is observed on the succeeding Monday).[14] The official names come from the statute that defines holidays for federal employees.

The holiday is observed on the third Monday of January.
February 15–21

Washington's BirthdayWashington's Birthday was first declared a federal holiday by an 1879 act of Congress. The Uniform Holidays Act, 1968, shifted the date of the commemoration of Washington's Birthday from February 22 to the third Monday in February (between February 15 and 21, meaning the observed holiday never falls on Washington's actual birthday). Because of this, combined with the fact that President Lincoln's birthday falls on February 12, many people now refer to this holiday as "Presidents' Day" and consider it a day honoring all American presidents. However, neither the Uniform Holidays Act nor any subsequent law changed the name of the holiday from Washington's Birthday to Presidents' Day.[1]

New Year's Day, Juneteenth, Independence Day, Veterans Day, and Christmas Day are observed on the same calendar date each year, irrespective of the day of the week. When a holiday falls on a Saturday, federal employees who work Monday to Friday observe the holiday on the previous Friday. Federal employees who work on Saturday observe the holiday on Saturday and, for them, Friday is a regular work day. Holidays that fall on a Sunday are observed by federal workers the following Monday. The other holidays always fall on a specific day of the week.[14]

Inauguration Day, held on January 20 every four years following a quadrennial presidential election, is considered a paid holiday for federal employees in the Washington, D.C., area by the Office of Personnel Management. However, it is not considered a federal holiday in the United States equivalent to the eleven holidays mentioned above.[18]

Although many states recognize most or all federal holidays as state holidays, the federal government cannot enact laws to compel them to do so. Furthermore, states can recognize other days as state holidays that are not federal holidays. For example, the State of Texas recognizes holidays in us 2020 federal holidays except Columbus Day, and in addition recognizes the Friday after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and the day after Christmas as state holidays.[19] Furthermore, Texas does not follow the federal rule of closing either the Friday before if a holiday falls on a Saturday, or the Monday after if a holiday falls on a Sunday (offices are open on those Fridays or Mondays), but does have "partial staffing holidays" (such as March 2, which is Texas Independence Day) and "optional holidays" (such as Good Friday).[19]

Private employers also are not required to observe federal or state holidays, the key exception being federally chartered banks. Some private employers, often by a union contract, pay a differential such as time-and-a-half or double-time to employees who work on some federal holidays. However, employees not specifically covered by a union contract might only receive their standard pay for working on a federal holiday, depending on the company policy.

Federal law also provides for the declaration of other public holidays by the President of the United States. Generally the president will provide a reasoning behind the elevation of the day, and call on the people of the United States to observe the day "with appropriate ceremonies and activities." Examples of presidentially declared holidays were the days of the funerals for former Presidents Ronald Reagan, George National bank of commerce phone number. W. Bush, and Gerald Ford; federal government offices were closed and employees given a paid holiday.

Proposed federal holidays[edit]

Many proposed federal holidays have come up over time. According to an article from CBS, federal holidays are generally "expensive" and they only allow federal workers to take the day off. As the U.S. federal government is a large employer, the holidays are expensive. If a holiday is controversial, opposition will generally prevent bills enacting them from passing. For example, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, marking King's birthday, took a lot of effort to pass.[20] And once it did pass, it took more effort for all states to eventually recognize it. It was not until 2000 that this holiday was officially observed in all 50 states.[21]

The following list is an example of holidays that have been proposed and have reasons why they are not observed at the federal level today. Some of these holidays are observed at the state level.

Controversy[edit]

Protests by the Native American state farm bank interest rates support the abolition of Columbus Day, mainly due to its ideology in forcefully conquering and converting whole populations with another and encouraging imperialism and colonization.[29] Glenn Morris of The Denver Post wrote that Columbus Day ". is not merely a celebration of Columbus the man; it is the celebration of a racist legal and political legacy—embedded in official legal and political pronouncements of the U.S.—such as the holidays in us 2020 of discovery and manifest destiny."[30]Alaska, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa,[31]Louisiana,[32]Maine, Minnesota,[33]New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina,[34]Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, and Wisconsin do not recognize Columbus Day, though other states such as Hawaii and South Dakota mark the day with an alternative holiday or observance. South Dakota is the only state to recognize Native American Day as an alternate. Hawaii recognizes Discoverer's Day. Other states such as Maine, Nevada, Washington and Wisconsin instead recognize Indigenous Peoples' Day as an alternative holiday.
