  • Why stop a populist tradition? Not to mention dia del amigo, dia de la secretaria, day of the horse etc etc.

    By comparison, in the UK there are 8, yes EIGHT.

    2018 Bank and Public Holidays UK:

    • New Year's Day: Monday 1 January
    • Good Friday: Friday 30 March
    • Easter Monday: Monday 2 April
    • Early May bank holiday: Monday 7 May

  • There are eight 2018 Federal holidays in the USA:

    New Year's Day, Mon, Jan 1

    Martin Luther King Day, Mon, Jan 15

    Memorial Day, Mon, May 28

    Independence Day, Weds, July 4

    Labor Day, Mon, Sept 3

    Veterans Day, Mon, Nov 12

    Thanksgiving Day, Thurs, Nov 22

    Christmas Day, Tues, Dec 25

    People who work in government offices, post offices and banks get paid days off for all 8 of these days, in addition to Presidents's Day in February.

    Most people who work in the private sector have paid days for only 6 of these; MLK Day and Veterans Day are not automatically holidays from work.

    As is the case everywhere, independent contractors have ZERO paid holidays. No work, no pay!
