As such, national holidays differ from one country to another. However, some of them are shared across the whole globe. These include Christmas holiday and the New Year’s Day.

There are other kinds of holidays which still have similar aspects with the above mentioned. There are federal holidays which are holidays recognized by the US constitution and government and thus are provided for all federal government employees. The local authorities also observe these holidays as well as most private organizations. They are paid up holidays and provide a great time to be with ones’ family and do several personal projects or just relax and enjoy the time. The other kinds of holidays are the bank holidays. Bank holidays refer to the days when the banks are allowed by law not to conduct any business and they thus stay closed from public use. Traditionally the Sundays are bank holidays and half a day on Saturdays.
These are however not enough days to conduct the important business done in bank holidays. Bank holidays differ from one country to another. In some places they are more and are synonymous with national holidays. In the US as in many other countries, the bank holidays are controlled by the federal government. In the US for instance, the Monday is the usual day for bank holidays. The ten federal holidays are also recognized as bank holidays. These are, New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King Day, and George Washington’s day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas day. These allow for the banks to have ample time to sort out business as the bank holidays are the time when banks get to complete pending tasks and keep accounts updated.
