US Holiday On April 13 2014?

The following is a compilation of American federal holidays, federal observances, state holidays and other common patriotic and national observances and commemorations that apply to the United States during Sunday, 2014-04-13:

  • Thomas Jefferson's Birthday:

    [fed-ob] Thomas Jefferson (13 April 1743 - 4 July 1826) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States as well as the drafter of the Declaration of Independence (1776), adviser to the Constitution and third president of the United States of America (1801–1809). The President shall issue each year a proclamation— (1) calling on officials of the United States Government to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on April 13;and (2) inviting the people of the United States to observe April 13 in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies in commemoration of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday.
  • Pan American Week - Day 1:

    [pro] The entire week on which the Pan American Day falls is observed as Pan American Week.
  • National Volunteer Week - Day 1:

    [pro] The second week of April each year is designated as National Volunteer Week. This week serves as a means to promote and show appreciation for volunteerism in the United States. Communities across the United States have celebrated National Volunteer Week since 1974, when President Nixon signed an executive order establishing the second week of April as an annual celebration of volunteering. Since then, every U.S. president has signed a proclamation promoting National Volunteer Week. According to the presidential proclamation (2016),
    Each day, humble people of every background and belief come together to fulfill the timeless responsibility we have as Americans: to accept certain obligations to one another. People of all ages can volunteer, and anyone can, through the smallest of acts, do their part to improve the lives of others. This week, we celebrate the selfless individuals around our country who channel their civic virtues through volunteerism, and we encourage more people to make service an integral part of their lives.
  • Palm Sunday:

    [other] Celebration to commemorate the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.
  • Child Care Worker Appreciation Week in Ohio:

    [oh-sp] The week of the nineteenth day of April shall be designated as "Child Care Worker Appreciation Week in Ohio," to commemorate those child care workers who lost their lives in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building on April 19, 1995, and to increase public appreciation of child care workers in Ohio. As used in this section, "the week of the nineteenth day of April" means the seven-day period beginning on Sunday and ending on Saturday that includes the nineteenth day of April.


[fed-ob] United States federal observances are days, weeks, months, or other periods designated by the United States Congress for the commemoration or other observance of various events, activities, or topics.
