The important thing to note about the Federal Holidays
As you can see that there a total of 10 holidays.
The same holidays are observed every year. However, the date and day keep on changing every year.
Out of these Four holidays are observed on the same date every year i.e. New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day, and Christmas Day.
Rest six holidays are the floating holidays i.e. their date is not fixed.
It is also important to note that, if a holiday falls on a Saturday then it will be observed on a preceding Friday, but if a federal employee is working on Saturday, then Friday will be a regular workday and the holiday will be observed on Saturday only. Holidays that fall on a Sunday are observed by federal workers on the following Monday.
For instance, this year, Independence Day is on Saturday which means that there will be a federal holiday on Friday i.e. July 3, 2020.
