Inauguration Day is not a federal holiday in the US.
Apr 2nd, 2012 at 22:33 GMT
@sadash Actually, Inauguration Day is most definitely a federal holiday in the US, it is just only one every 4 years. Remember a Federal holiday is different in that it just means the federal government isn't working.

Take it from a former civil service employee - there is no holiday for Inauguration Day for the vast majority of Federal workers. It only applies to those who are domiciled in D.C. and vicinity. The rest of us celebrate Dr. King's birthday that week. Citation: http://www.opm.gov/operating_status_schedules/fedhol/2013.asp

sprout, I was afraid to click on Washington's Birthday because I thought it might be a trick. (But since President's Day wasn't there and I needed one more, I took the chance.) I don't think it's been called Washington's B-Day for a long time. I don't mean to nitpick; it's just that some people may not choose it based on that. :)
Apr 7th, 2012 at 17:59 GMT
@triviahappy actually Presidents day isn't a federal holiday. It is still officially called Washington's birthday on the books. I actually went and checked.
Apr 12th, 2012 at 03:23 GMT
I, too, was a federal civil service employee for many, many years. No day off for Inauguration Day.
Apr 15th, 2012 at 00:31 GMT
@sprout: Sorry about that. I guess I've heard it mentioned too much by the media and commercials as Pres. Day. I hadn't heard it referred to as Wash. Bday in so long I really thought they had changed it, but I'm actually really glad to hear that it is still officially Washington's Birthday. I think he deserves the day. And in a way, when all the presidents are lumped together, it kind of seems like the day is for nobody (in particular, that is). Thanks for educating me!!! :)

If the criteria for a federal holiday is that the government isn't working we must have a couple hundred of them a year. Ba-dump, ching!

There really aren't enough holidays and what about Sporcle day?
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 09:25 GMT
I thought that it was renamed "President's Day" in order to include both Washington's and Lincolns' birthdays which used to be separated separately but very close together.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 09:26 GMT
I meant "celebrated separately"
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 10:31 GMT
Your quiz inspired me to research what other countries celebrate Labour Day: so far, Canada and Cuba.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 11:13 GMT
@chikka2; Most countries (Brazil, Argentina, India, UK, etc.) do celebrate international labor day, on May 1. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Workers%27_Day for more info on this.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 11:28 GMT
Contrary to Wikipedia, in the UK I don't think most people associate May Day as an 'international labour day'. It was originally all about summer and fertility and other such things and at least where I live that's still the tradition.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 11:55 GMT
Washington's Birthday was tricky- and yes, I saw Sprout's explanation in the previous comments. We really ought to call it President's Day officially, since the day Washington was born can't change, but President's Day is always celebrated on a Monday.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 12:36 GMT
The majority of countries celebrate Labor Day on May 1st. However, the first Monday in September has an advantage. May 1st can fall on a Sunday; the first Monday in September can't.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 12:50 GMT
3 minutes? WAY too much time!!
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 14:28 GMT
Canada has Labour Day today too!!
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 15:17 GMT
You mean to tell me that star wars day (may 4th, as is "may the fourth be with you") is not a federal holiday. Travesty!
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 16:27 GMT
@singin185, actually, apparently, the day Washington was born on CAN change: http://www.americaslibrary.gov/jb/colonial/jb_colonial_washingtn_2.html ;)
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 16:43 GMT
When will August 15th Day be recognized!? Not enough summer holidays. A day to go fishing, grill, pitch horseshoes, and drink.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 17:18 GMT
I tried to tell the boss I was American today, but he wouldn't really accept it...
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 18:33 GMT
@Toby123---Sporcle Day is on October 14: the day Kyrgyzstan was established.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 18:52 GMT
Although Wikipedia does claim that Inauguration Day is indeed a federal holiday, it seems a little bit like a misleading/trick-question to include a "Federal" holiday that only employees of one district in the US actually observes.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 20:45 GMT
@PS90 It isn't according to wikipedia, but by federal statute. The annual holidays can be found here (with Inauguration day only occurring every 4 years)

Ahhh, my eyes hurt from reading the word "day" so many times!
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 22:42 GMT
@trinaK: I thought about that as I wrote that comment.

May Day lol

Every federal institution in my area is closed on Christmas eve except the Post Office.
Sep 4th, 2012 at 19:11 GMT
I thought it was odd when I first read it, but Christmas day is a recommended day to fly the American flag.
Sep 10th, 2012 at 18:32 GMT
That was a good call, not putting a Presidents' Day decoy among the choices. It must have been tempting, but ultimately, it wouldn't have been worth all of the angry comments it would have engendered.

Having lived in Northern Virginia for a few years, I can vouch that Inauguration Day is a Federal Holiday for all Federal Employees working in the District of Columbia (as well as non-essential employees at the Pentagon). This is done because metro DC traffic is bad enough on a normal day, and they want to clear up I-95, I-295, I-395, I-495, I-66, US-1, the Balt-Wash Pkwy, and WMATA Metro for the tourists.
