US Holiday On March 30 2020?

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, 2020-03-30:

  • Seward's Day:

    [ak] Seward's Day is a legal holiday in the U.S. state of Alaska observed on the last Monday in March which commemorates the signing of the Alaska Purchase treaty on March 30, 1867 (153 years ago). It should not be confused with Alaska Day, which marks the formal transfer of control over Alaska from Russia to the United States.
  • National Doctor's Day:

    [non] National Doctors Day, celebrated every year on March 30th, is a day meant to bring attention to the service of all physicians — living or dead — and their contribution to individual health and medical progress. Doctor’s Day was first celebrated in Georgia on March 30, 1933, after Eudora Brown Almond, the wife of Dr. Charles B. Almond, decided there should be a day to appreciate physicians. March 30 was a meaningful date because it was the anniversary of the first use of general anesthesia in surgery, which occurred in 1842. On March 30, 1958, a Resolution Commemorating Doctors' Day was adopted by the United States House of Representatives. In 1990, legislation was introduced in the House and Senate to establish a national Doctor's Day. Following overwhelming approval by the United States Senate and the House of Representatives, on October 30, 1990, President George Bush signed S.J. RES. #366 (which became Public Law 101-473) designating March 30th as National Doctor's Day.
