Holidays USA: what are they
"In God we trust" is the motto of the United States of America. This multi-faceted state. It is the third in population and the fourth largest territory in the world, contains fifty States. They are the equal subjects of the Federation, the Metropolitan counties of Columbia, having a separate for each state legislative, judicial and Executive power and the Constitution.
Often you can meet someone who wants to get with this maelstrom of scientific and technological progress, fast food and rich night life. Therefore, America can easily be called strange immigrants. Every day here come hundreds, and possibly thousands of people from around the world. They are all different nationalities and religions. And, it would seem that the more ethnic groups, the more public holidays United States notes. However, this view is mistaken. The only positive factor can only be a good employer, included in the difficult position of immigrants and authorizing him in this great day for him not to come to work. As a result, with all this diversity of ethnic holidays is difficult to determine which institutions (be they public or private) will be able to meet necessary for you holiday or labor day. This is particularly problematic in new York.
But the Americans are not such simple people. Depending on their origin there are different holidays in the USA. For example, March 17 is famous for the St. Patrick's Day. On this day, many locals wear the green in honor of the so-called "emerald Isle", and all the noise on the street, you can see real fun. In the US, the holidays are varied and each is interesting in its own way. The day before the Christian lent festival of Mardi Gras, which translated from French means "fat Tuesday". This day is considered the last day when you can eat before lent. On this occasion, in New Orleans and Louisiana are fantastic parades and fun. It is a tradition characteristic of the early colonists of France.
However, despite all this diversity of traditions and the diversity of nationalities, there are "real" holidays of the United States, which unites all citizens without regard to skin color, faith and origin. But not without paradox. USA is a country consisting of fifty States, each of which are holidays for each individual.
By law the government is introducing holidays exclusively for civil servants, but, as practice shows, in most States, is still observed Federal holidays USA. These include traditional for many countries, New Year, Christmas, independence Day, labor Day, veterans Day and some extraordinary festivals such as: "the birthday of the first President of America George Washington", "Martin Luther king" and "Columbus Day". Here's an interesting people, these Americans. But it's not all the state holidays of the USA, they are so numerous that all do not mention.
