Holidays in the USA
In the United States of America, as in any country in the world, there are traditional holidays.
According to the US Constitution, the federal government does not have the right to establish public holidays (weekends) for the entire country, so officially there are no national holidays in the United States. In fact, these are all federal holidays. There are twelve of them – eleven are annual and one is celebrated every four years.
In addition to federal, there are a number of holidays established by the governments of certain states, as well as unofficial, but nonetheless beloved and celebrated by many people.
US federal holidays
US federal holidays are US federal holidays that are required by all government agencies.
If the holiday falls on a Saturday, then the previous Friday is a public holiday for federal employees; if on Sunday, the next Monday is the day off.
Usually, most states and private enterprises adhere to the rules for the Monday holiday after the holiday on Sunday. To a lesser extent, non-governmental organizations follow the rule of a day off on Friday before the holiday on Saturday.
