In Unites States of America, a federal holiday is the one recognized by the US government. These are authorized holidays. The federal employees are given a paid leave on the US federal holiday. Also other institutions, schools, colleges, post offices are closed on these days. In addition to the federal holidays the state and city holidays are observed in various parts of the country.

Originally only four federal holidays were created, but as years went many days were added to the list and many are being proposed. When a federal holiday falls on Saturday it is usually observed on Friday (the day before), and when it falls on Sunday it is observed the following Monday.

The original four US federal holidays were:

  • New Years Day (01 January)
  • Independence Day (04 July)
  • Thanksgiving Day(4th Thursday of November)
  • Christmas Day (25 December)
