Holidays & Observances in United States
Holidays in the U.S. are classified as Federal Holidays for all holidays where banks, schools and government offices are closed. In most states in the U.S., there are still large chains, stores and restaurants that are open on every day of the year, even the biggest holidays such as Christmas. Unlike many countries that celebrate a National Day or days, the U.S. has Federal days. A recent trend is daily fun holidays being classified as "National", when in fact, they are not official by any government organization and are created by anyone. See our list of Daily Fun and Noteable holidays listed here. Many states in the U.S. also observe local holidays.
The U.S. is also very culturally diverse with many religions and beliefs that are commonly observed. Popular holidays, such as Valentine's Day, are widely popular and celebrated throughout the country.
