US Holiday On September 23 2019?

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 Monday, 2019-09-23:

  • Constitution Week - Day 7:

    [fed-ob] Constitution Week in the United States is a federal observance to commemorate the adoption of the United States Constitution. The observance runs annually from September 17 to September 23. It was officially enacted on August 2, 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower from a congressional resolution petitioned by the Daughters of the American Revolution, but it was George W Bush who officially declared the inception of Constitution Week in September 2002. The purpose of the observance week is to promote study and education about the constitution which was originally adopted by the American Congress of the Confederation on September 17, 1787.
  • Parent’s Week:

    [oh-sp] The fourth week of September is designated as "Parent's Week" to commend and encourage the work of parents in supporting and caring for their children.
  • Autumnal Equinox:

    [non] The autumnal equinox is also known as the "September equinox" or "Southward equinox" and it is the moment when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator, heading southward. This year, the exact moment of the autumnal equinox is at 02:49 am (Central Time USA). At the time when the Sun is crossing the celestial equator, either southwards of northwards, day and night are of nearly equal length at all latitudes and astronomers call that moment an "equinox", a word derived from the Latin that means "equal night". The autumnal equinox does not fall on the same day every year, rather, it can occur at any time between the 21st and the 24th day of September in the northern hemisphere.


[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.).

[oh-sp] This is a special day, week or month by Statutory Designation in the State of Ohio.

[non] This is a non-holiday notable day
