India

The Union Government designates national holidays which are generally observed all over the country, although they are mandatory only for Union Government institutions. State governments generally specify additional holidays depending on their demographics. For example, Guru Nanak Jayanti is a holiday in the North Western states of Haryana and Punjab, and in Delhi, but it is not a holiday in other states and territories where there is no significant Sikh population.
Public Holidays as specified by the Union Government (generally observed in the entire Union):
India is a multicultural and multireligious society and celebrates holidays and festivals of various religions. In addition to national holidays, many states and regions have local festivals depending on religious and linguistic demographics.[2]

Religious holidays are observed according to the Julian calendar (but here the Gregorian date of Christmas is written).
.When a public holiday falls on a weekly day off (for example, Sunday), the following working day (often it is Monday) turns into an official day off too.^ Blazing rays the last days and timely with lots of public holidays in Austria around this time.

.For the most of Ukrainian employees weekly days off are Saturday and Sunday.^ Available again this year is an all-day lawn pass for Saturday and Sunday for $33 per day.

.If only one or only two working days are between a public holiday and another day off then the Ukrainian Government usually releases a recommendation to avoid this gap by moving these working days onto a certain Saturday (that is to have uninterrupted vacations, but to compensate this by work on another day which would be a day off).^ Blazing rays the last days and timely with lots of public holidays in Austria around this time.

.Usually such recommendations touch only those employees whose weekly days off are Saturday and Sunday.^ Available again this year is an all-day lawn pass for Saturday and Sunday for $33 per day.

See Public holidays in the United States for background information.
The United States federal government designates national holidays for federal employees only. State and local governments generally observe these holidays as well as many State Holidays. For a basic list of holidays as seen on a 2010 calendar:
.The federal holidays (which are days off from work for federal employees) are New Years Day, Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.^ Lots of amazing music featured with the guys in the Soul office loading new content from new labels every day.We start with the one the best new labels in recent years.

The official list can be found here (http://www.opm.gov/Operating_Status_Schedules/fedhol/index.asp). These holidays are not necessarily days off from work for private sector workers. .Most private sector businesses close for only the "Big 6" holidays: New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.^ Lots of amazing music featured with the guys in the Soul office loading new content from new labels every day.We start with the one the best new labels in recent years.

Many also close on the Friday after Thanksgiving (aka Black Friday), which is not an official holiday, but is commonly granted to private sector workers. .Some private businesses may also close for one or more other federal holidays (most commonly either Martin Luther King Day, or Presidents Day).^ In the days when he led his band onto some of the more fashionable platforms in the country -- particularly at debutantes' dances -- that counted for something.

^ He had been a member of the legendary "Gruppe 47" and one of the most important German poets of the present day.

When a federal holiday falls on Sunday, most federal workers who work a Mon-Fri workweek will observe the holiday on Monday. When a federal holiday falls on Saturday, most federal workers who work a Mon-Fri workweek will observe the holiday on Friday. Workers who normally work on Saturday (such as mail carriers) will observe the holiday on Saturday; Friday will be a regular work day.
In state and local governments, and in the private sector, practices vary when a holiday falls on Saturday or Sunday. In general, most states and private sector workers will observe a holiday that falls on Sunday on Monday. However, that is not universal. .Some states and private sector workers will observe a Saturday holiday on Friday, but that is less common than observing the Sunday holidays on Monday.^ Performances will be presented Friday and Saturday, July18-19, and Monday through Thursday, July 21-24.

.Occasionally, a state or private sector worker will observe a Saturday holiday on Monday, but that is even less common than Friday.^ Performances will be presented Friday and Saturday, July18-19, and Monday through Thursday, July 21-24.

Many state workers and private sector workers (in particular, employees at a bank normally closed on Saturdays) do not get any day off when a holiday falls on Saturday, and are "cheated" out of the holiday. Occasionally, a floating holiday may be given in lieu of a Saturday holiday.
