Estos comentarios, sobre los días feriados en Estados Unidos, son in Ingles. Si tiene cualquiera pregunta sobre estos comentarios, por favor contáctanos.  Private vs. Public Sector Holidays: According to the Society for Human Resource Management, most American businesses observe the six major American public holidays: New Year's, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas, with on average 2 other public holidays. As far as state and local government employees are concerned, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that they get a nationwide average of 11 paid public sector holidays.  Officially, the U.S. has no national public holidays. The president and congress may only declare public holidays for federal employees and for the District of Columbia. Each state decides which public holidays will be observed within its borders. Having said this, one can be fairly certain that very little business will get done on these listed holidays. When a public holiday for a Day of Mourning is declared, it only applies to these same employees. Banks, stores, businesses, state employees, and schools maintain their normal schedules, although they will fly their flags at half mast. Postal workers are federal employees and are closed on federal holidays.  The federal rules that apply to New Year's Day, Independence Day, Veterans' Day, and Christmas are as follows. If the holiday falls on a Saturday, then the preceding Friday is the day off work. If the holiday falls on a Sunday, then the federal holiday is the next Monday. This is only for federal employees. Individual states may do as they please.  Various states have other ways of dealing with these days, some of which are to move fixed-date public holidays to the following Monday, whenever it falls on a Saturday or a Sunday. Some places simply let employees take off a mutually agreed upon day at another time. Each state also may have some other holidays that it celebrates.  If New Year's Day is a Sunday, then most people other than federal employees will be at work on Monday, Jan. 2nd. Many people take the week off between Christmas and New Year's and so need to be back on Jan. 2.  Martin Luther King Day supplanted Lincoln's Birthday which used to be a week before Washington's Birthday. Although still legally called Washington's Birthday, it is usually referred to as Presidents' Day now.  Most people do work on Presidents' Day although many schools have a week off around that time.  Columbus Day and Veterans' Day are also not strictly observed as public holidays.  Easter: Good Friday or Easter Monday are still holidays in several states, although not federally. Many stores that are usually open on Sundays, do not open on Easter Sunday.  The Friday after Thanksgiving is considered to be the biggest shopping day of the year and is a day that most workers not involved in the retail trade have off. This is also the most traveled time of the year for Americans, even more so than Christmas. It is wise to avoid having to travel from Wednesday through Sunday, unless it can't be helped.  Regardless of which days Christmas and New Year's fall on, many businesses tend to have at least limited hours between these holidays.  Muslim Dates and Holidays: On August 6, 2006, the ISNA has agreed to use astronomical calculation to predict the dates when Islamic months begin. A five-year calendar can now be found on their website .  In August of 2005 the United States Congress passed the Energy Policy Act which changes the start dates and the end dates of daylight saving time (DST). When this law goes into effect in 2007, DST will start three weeks earlier on March 11, 2007, and end one week later on November 4, 2007. These dates are referred to in this article as the Extended DST period.  Cesar Chavez's Birthday: The birthday of the civil rights activist, March 31, is observed in California and Texas, and is an optional public holiday in Arizona and Colorado. However, due to Chavez's longstanding and oft re-iterated emphasis on the importance of education, schools are usually not closed on the date of his birthday.
