Full list of US 2024 federal holiday dates

On Thursday, July 4, the US will honor Independence Day.

Every year, on the fourth of July, the US celebrates America’s independence from Great Britain in 1776. That year, on July 2, the Continental Congress passed Richard Henry Lee’s resolution for independence. Lee, a Virginia delegate, introduced his proposal during the June 7 Continental Congress meeting at the Pennsylvania State House in Philadelphia.

On July 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence, drafted by Thomas Jefferson, was adopted by the delegates from all 13 colonies. Though the law recognizes specific federal holidays, this does not mean that individuals working for private businesses are required to have work off.
