US Holiday Matching Game Answer Key

Posted On: December 26, 2022

Presidents Day

Presidents Day is commemorated on the 3rd Monday of February. While it is a government holiday, it is not a holiday for everyone. Schools, government offices (no mail, for instance), banks and select private businesses are closed. Some schools may have an extended winter break for up to a week during this time.


Memorial Day

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of every month. Typically, this becomes a three-day long weekend for many across the country. While schools, banks and posts offices are closed, a majority of private businesses also have a holiday today. While this day is set aside for commemorating the fallen soldiers (as compared to Veterans Day – November 11- which is to honor all living and passed who have served in the military), this day is also known as the unofficial first day of summer.



June 19th 1865 marks the emancipation of enslaved African Americans. Juneteenth is also known as National Independence Day, Jubilee Day Emancipation Day (TX), Freedom Day, or Black Independence Day. While Juneteenth is a Federal Holiday (banks, stock markets, post offices and schools in session are not in session), it may not be an office holiday for everyone.


Election Day

Election Day is not a paid day off of work. No businesses, schools, banks, post offices or any establishment would be closed (unless they decide to, which is rare). Due to this many go to vote in person before or after they have to go to work. In some states citizens can also vote by mail. While elections for various posts happen every year on this day, every 4 years (on a year divisible by 4), citizens vote for a US president.
