Do you get a ton of federal holidays off in 2022? It’s hard to remember them all, but we’ve got your back. Here are all of the 2022 holidays and what they’re used for. Each holiday is listed along with a date, a brief description of where it came from, and how it’s celebrated today.

We want you to have the best holidays possible, so we’ve put together a list of all the 2022 holidays that US workers get off from work. There are several federal holidays, and each one has its own story behind it.

The US federal government runs a lot of the programs that make life in America possible – including holidays. Each year, there are ten big national holidays that the country’s workers get to celebrate. Below, we have the full list of 2022 federal holidays, including a brief description of where they come from and how they’re celebrated.

Federal Holidays celebrate the founding of this great nation. Not only do we give you a list of federal holidays in 2022, we tell you where they came from and how they are celebrated across the United States.

This list answers the question, “What are federal holidays in 2022?” Federal employees get these days off. If you work in a government office on any of the following days, you will get that day off.

Did you know that there are 56 days off (48 federal holidays) in 2022? That’s a lot of free time! The government recognizes dozens of special days throughout the year and most of them are paid holidays. This list is comprised of all the federal holidays that US employers are required to pay employees who work in cities with populations greater than 50,000 people.

While this list contains all the days that are US federal holidays, it doesn’t list state or local holidays. To get a full picture of all the national and regional holidays in 2022, check out our Holidays in 2022 page.

Here you’ll find a list of all holidays in 2022. This includes federal holidays and some other major holidays. Each holiday gives a brief history and explanation of the importance of each day being recognized as a holiday.

Gone are the days when federal holidays were only celebrated in one way: by getting a day off from work. Nowadays, people celebrate their holidays in many different ways — sometimes it’s an outdoor barbecue (Memorial Day), other times it’s a night on the town (New Year’s Eve), and often it’s a chance to get together with friends and family for a long weekend (Labor Day). The content here is up-to-date and accurate, but we do encourage you to double check facts before making any decisions based on this information. This being said, we hope you learn something new about the holidays that you didn’t know before!

You’ve spent all year working for long days and late nights – so why not reward yourself with a federal holiday. As you can see there are plenty to choose from, but if you work in Federal government then you get all of them off. We’ve also included a few more days just because they are important and deserve a highlight.

The future is upon us, friends. And with it comes a whole new batch of holidays for us to enjoy.
