What Happens If July 4th Lands on a Weekend?

Monday, June 21st, 2010

We’ve been asked that since July 4th falls on a weekend this year, what is the policy about getting the following Monday (July 5th) off from work for a 3 day weekend.

According to Wikipedia, Federal employees should get Monday the 5th off. But for state/local and private business employees its at their employers discretion.

From Wikipedia: Federal Holidays

If a holiday falls on a Saturday it is celebrated the preceding Friday; if a holiday falls on a Sunday it is celebrated the following Monday. Most, but not all, states and most private businesses also observe a Sunday holiday on the following Monday. It is less common, however, for a state or private business to observe a Saturday holiday on the preceding Friday. Some states and private businesses may observe it then, a few may observe it on Monday, and some may not observe the holiday at all in those years. In particular, banks that close on Saturdays do not observe a holiday when it falls on Saturday.

Did You Know?
Facts, Figures & Folklore
About the Season of Summer

June 21 : 1st day of Summer

Did you know that summer begins on June 21st and ends on September 20th in the Northern Hemisphere?

In the Southern Hemisphere, however, mid June is the start of winter weather. For Aussies, South Africans and South Americans, the summer actually falls in December, January and February.

Summertime! Maybe it’s hot and dry by you, or perhaps you get the humid and muggy air. But whatever the dew point in your part of the world, summertime definitely means taking fun-filled trips to the beach or pool, enjoying family picnics and fun outings together, and, of course, lathering up with sunscreen.

Its Summertime, Summertime, Sum Sum Summertime!

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got women, you got women on your mind

Summer arrived today at 7:28 AM EDT.
(And its the first day of Winter in the Southern Hemisphere!)

If her daddy’s rich take her out for a meal
If her daddy’s poor just do what you feel
Speed along the lane
Do a ton or a ton an’ twenty-five
When the sun goes down
You can make it, make it good in a lay-by
