  • Stephen Foster Memorial Day:

    [fed-ob][pro] The President may issue each year a proclamation designating January 13 Stephen Foster Memorial Day. Stephen Collins Foster (July 4, 1826 - January 13, 1864) was a prominent American singer of his era. Many of his songs, such as Oh! Susanna, Camptown Races and Beautiful Dreamer remain popular 150 years after its composition.

Notes:

[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. These observances differ from Federal holidays in that Federal employees only receive a day free from work on holidays, not observances. Federal observances that are designated by Congress appear in Title 36 of the United States Code (36 U.S.C. § 101 et seq.).

[pro] This is a special day designated by presidential proclamation.
