US President, Barak Obama, released an Executive Order, dated December 5, once again indicating that "All executive branch departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed and their employees excused from duty on Friday, December 26, 2014, the day after Christmas Day".

Over the years (15-Dec-2008), various US Presidents have declared one-off federal sector holidays so that federal civil servants get a 4-day Christmas break. President George W. Bush declared December 24 a public holiday for federal civil servants in 2001, 2002, and 2007, while December 26 was declared so in 2003 and 2008. President Obama, for his part, declared December 24 as a public holiday for federal civil servants in 2009 and 2012.

Note that the aforementioned declaration of December 26 as a public holiday only applies to federal civil servants, excluding the armed forces, meaning that this applies to slightly less than a million employees.
