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. For the most of Ukrainian employees weekly days off are Saturday and Sunday. 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). Usually such recommendations touch only those employees whose weekly days off are Saturday and Sunday.

List of holidays by country
• December 25 - Christmas Day • December 26 - Boxing Day In Scotland, the holidays listed above are official bank holidays and may not be public holidays. Public holidays are set by local authorities and therefore vary from place to place, although Christmas, Boxing Day, New Year’s Day and January 2 and May Day are observed throughout the country. And in fact, banks in Scotland actually observe the English bank holidays, so Scottish bank holidays which differ from the English ones are of little practical importance. In Northern Ireland Easter Tuesday is treated as a public holiday in lieu of Good Friday.

United States of America
See Public holidays of the United States for background information. The United States federal government designates national holidays for federal employees only.

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. 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). 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. Occasionally, a

state or private sector worker will observe a Saturday holiday on Monday, but that is even less common than Friday. 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. • • • •
