Although we’re only a few days into the New Year, it’s a good time to take note of the upcoming 2024 U.S. holiday calendar.

In the United States, and practically worldwide, January 1 is a day off to enjoy with family.

Three Kings’ Day is only celebrated in a few countries on January 6.

It is observed in Venezuela, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Argentina and Mexico, among others.

There are 11 federal U.S. holidays

According to AS, since Juneteenth was officially declared a holiday in 2021, the United States has 11 federal holidays.

As mentioned earlier, the first of them is New Year’s Day, although there is another celebration later in this month.

The birth of Martin Luther King, Jr. is commemorated on the third Monday, which in 2024 falls on January 15.

It’s worth remembering that the renowned activist was assassinated on April 4, 1968.
