Calender 2018 – Federal Holidays

In U.S., there are ten federal holidays in a single year. These holidays are designated by U.S. Congress which has the constitutional authority to create holidays for federal institutions. There are no national holidays in United States. Most of the federal calender holidays are considered as state holidays.

U.S. Federal holidays are also known as public or legal holidays because of their nationwide observance. U.S. company holidays are as same as federal holidays because they follow the federal calender.
