HOLIDAYS

LEGAL HOLIDAYS


[photo, Inner Harbor, Baltimore, Maryland] Maryland's legal holidays include each statewide general election day, and each other day that the President of the United States or the Governor designates for general cessation of business. If a holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed the following Monday (Chapter 422, Acts of 1994; Code General Provisions Article, sec. 1-111).

Although holiday generally means "a day marked by a general suspension of work in commemoration of an event", in Maryland, this is not always the case.
