Federal Holidays: Evolution and Current Practices [November 16, 2012]   [open pdf - 254KB]

"The United States has established the following 11 permanent federal holidays established by law, listed in the chronological order in which they were created: New Year's Day, George Washington's Birthday, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Columbus Day, Labor Day, Martin Luther King Jr.'s Birthday, and Inauguration Day. Although frequently called public or national holidays, these celebrations are only legally applicable to federal employees and the District of Columbia, as the states individually decide their own legal holidays."
