Who doesn’t love a holiday? But is every day a holiday? Well, yes and no. There are official holidays that are recognized by the Federal government. These days matter if you are filing court paperwork and need to know how to compute the time allowed. The list of a legal holidays recognized by the Federal courts can be found in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure located here. Massachusetts also has legal holidays and rules for computing time.

That leaves the unofficial holidays. These days recognize important issues such as National Adoption Day, or exist for civic purposes such as National Law Day.  There are also lighthearted days to celebrate.  Today, for instance,  is National Iced Tea Day.  If drinking tea is, well not your cup of tea, then just wait.   National Ice Cream Soda Day and National Chocolate Eclair Day are just around the corner. For information about these, and the rest of June’s “holidays” click here. Enjoy!
