In America there are many kinds of federal holidays and national observances every year.These holidays can be categorized into secular, international, religious and uniquely American. The federal offices remain close on these days. If a holiday falls on a Saturday, it is observed on the preceding Friday and if a holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed on the following Monday.
As there are many holidays and different levels in American government, you can be uncertain about the availability of facilities on these days. Such information can be verified in daily newspapers or any office you are planning to visit.
