  • 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.


[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.).
