Filed under: Electronic Resources — Tags: , — uhlawlibrary @ 10:27 am

A HeinOnline blog post about the holiday retailers call “Presidents Day” indicates that this holiday is actually Washington’s Birthday. In 5 U.S.C. 6103, ten federal holidays are listed.

  • New Year’s Day – Jan. 1
  • Birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. – 3d Monday in January
  • Washington’s Birthday – 3d Monday in February
  • Memorial Day – Last Monday in May
  • Independence Day – July 4
  • Labor Day – 1st Monday in September
  • Columbus Day – 2d Monday in October
  • Veterans Day – Nov. 11
  • Thanksgiving Day – 4th Thursday in November
  • Christmas Day – Dec. 25
  • HeinOnline also offers links on its blog post to scholarly articles about Washington’s Birthday as a legal public holiday.

    The Law Library at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii makes this resource and many others available to faculty, students and staff of the Law School and to other patrons visiting the Law Library.
