Martin Luther King Day (third Monday in January)
The holiday marks the birthday of Martin Luther King (15 January), a prominent activist of the American civil rights movement. Cities and communities hold parades and marches remembering King and the values he stood for.
Presidents’ Day/Washington’s Birthday (third Monday in February)
This celebration is dedicated to one or a few of American presidents. In some states, it marks the birthday of George Washington (22 February) or Abraham Lincoln (12 February), in others, they remember both or another combination of past American leaders. And while it is a very much political holiday, many Americans celebrate their long weekend by going shopping as it is common for shops to organize big Presidents’ Day sales and promotions.
Memorial Day (last Monday in May)
Also known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day remembers the people who died while serving the country. On this day various communities hold patriotic events all over the country and people attend military cemeteries where volunteers decorate the gravestones with American flags. A big concert takes place on the lawn of the capitol in Washington D.C. and is live-streamed on TV. Memorial Day weekend is considered to be the start of summer vacation in the US so, for many, this is a cheerful celebration of American armed forces.
Labor Day (first Monday in September)
The day celebrates the labor movement and workers that bring prosperity and growth to the US. Many sporting events happen around Labor Day, like NASCAR auto races and the kick-off National Football League season, so it’s common for people to spend the day preparing and then watching them on TV. Shopping is another popular activity because many shops organize big sales and promotions on the Labor Day weekend. As it is widely accepted that the day marks the end of summer holidays, many choose to spend some of their time outside picnicking or having a barbecue.
Veterans’ Day (11 November)
Often confused with Memorial Day, Veterans Day was first established as a holiday to remember the veterans of World War I. However, in the 50’s it was changed to commemorate the service of all the veterans that served for the US armed forces.
The celebrations are more solemn and serious than on Memorial Day. A two-minute-long moment of silence is held all over the country at 11:00. Veterans are honored in patriotic events and by the whole community in general e.g.: they get offered free meals in restaurants and cafeterias.
If 11 November falls on a Saturday, many workers get the preceding Friday (10 November) off. If it happens to be on a Sunday, the proceeding Monday (12 November) is celebrated.
