While businesses in the United States are not legally required to observe national, state, or religious holidays, the vast majority of U.S. businesses observe the following seven holidays, usually following the federal holiday calendar.

Some employers in the U.S. create additional employee holidays, such as a floating holiday or the employee’s birthday.

** December 25, 2016 (the legal public holiday for Christmas Day), falls on a Sunday. For most Federal employees, Monday, December 26, will be treated as a holiday for pay and leave purposes.

Businesses may also observe one or more of the following holidays based on industry, custom, or tradition:

  • New Year’s Eve
  • Presidents Day
  • Columbus Day
  • The Friday after Thanksgiving Day
