As of 2015, two federal holidays occur in November: Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving. Veteran's Day observations usually occur on November 11, and Thanksgiving is always the fourth Thursday of the month, meaning it can be as early as November 22 or as late as November 28.
When November 11 falls on a Saturday, the federal holiday observation occurs on the preceding Friday, November 10. When Veteran's Day falls on a Sunday, federal employees observe the holiday on Monday, November 12.
There are 10 federal holidays in a calendar year. January is the only other month that has two federal holidays, including New Year's Day and Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday.
