Day After Christmas Day | Thursday, 26 | December, | 2019

Celebrate the Day

December 26 is a day off for most workers where it's a state holiday. In places where it's not a public holiday, most families use up a vacation day, as most schools are closed. US presidents have given federal government workers either a full or half day off in some years.

Kwanzaa is another popular American observance post-Christmas.

What's Open or Closed?

The Day after Christmas is a public holiday in some states, including Kansas, New Hampshire, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia. Government offices, educational institutions and many businesses are usually closed in these states.

About the Day after Christmas Day

December 26 follows from Christmas Day, which is when most Christians in the U.S. celebrate the birth of Jesus, whom they believe is the son of God. Christmas is often combined with customs from pre-Christian winter celebrations. The Bible does not give a precise date for the birth of Jesus. It is also unclear when December 25 became associated with the birth of Jesus, although it may have been around two hundred years after his birth.
