United States Holidays
List of United States Holidays

Please select a holiday to shop:
Thanksgiving | Christmas | Valentine's Day | Mother's Day
Saint Patrick's Day | Easter | Father's Day

Each state in the USA has its own public holidays. Federal Government employees also have their own statutory holidays and so do the New York Stock Exchange and New York Mercantile Exchange.

Federal holidays are moved to a Friday if they occur on a Saturday and to a Monday if they occur on a Sunday. Most states follow this rule, but there are exceptions. I will give details when I have them, but our information in this area is not exhaustive and therefore, unless otherwise stated, please do not be surprised if a holiday is moved from a weekend to either the Friday preceding or Monday following.

There are also many varied and complex rules about special cases (what do you do if you are working night shift and part of your shift falls on a holiday?...) but it is beyond the scope of this site to give such details.

A list of common observances which are not holidays is provided below.

Federal holidays affect all Federal government offices and the District of Columbia.

*Inauguration Day occurs on 20 January of each 4th year starting from 1965. It applies to the District of Columbia, Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties in Maryland, Arlington and Fairfax Counties in Virginia, and the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church in Virginia only and is moved to a Monday if it occurs on a Sunday.

Holidays occuring on a Saturday are observed on the preceding Friday, those on a Sunday on the Monday following.
