December 2018 Holidays

The holiday season is in full swing with Thanksgiving just behind us and Christmas and New Years only weeks away. This year, Christmas Day (December 25th) and New Year's Day (January 1st) both fall on Tuesdays. Most banks, schools, state and federal offices will be closed for both holidays. Many private sector businesses will also take these two days off.
December Holidays in the US
Christmas and New Year's Day holidays are both federal holidays in the U.S. and are not mandatory for private sector business. However, many companies voluntarily elect to follow the holiday pattern of the federal government. Certain union contracts or labor agreements may impact private sector business obligations for these holidays.

Wednesday, December 26th is Boxing Day for our friends in Canada, Great Britain and other Commonwealth nations. This holiday has a rich history dating back to medieval Britain when servants would receive a gift and day off. Though it is not a statutory holiday and offered as paid to everyone, it is common throughout the Commonwealth nations.
