US holidays 2019

Americans share three national holidays with many countries: Easter Sunday, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

With January here, it means a lot more than colder temperatures – as the New Year also brings with it the first of the federal holidays of 2019.

On January 1, Americans celebrated their first federal holiday of the year after ringing in the New Year the night before – and on January 21, the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr, also a federal holiday.

Unfortunately, this means the next federal holiday – the celebration of President’s Day on February 18 – is weeks away. Federal holidays, often observed with paid-time-off from work, were created by Congress in 1885 when it was decided that federal employees should have certain days off from work. As time went by, Congress realized how nice it was to have paid time off – and added historical days of significance to the list of federal holidays, bringing the total number to 10.
