No. 2 - Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (January 21)
Without going into a history lesson, MLK, Jr. was a great man, activist and leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He lives on as a national icon who has inspired millions and helped mold our country into what it is today in terms of progressivism. So, we Americans honor him once a year in January. If you happen to get the day off of work as a result, that is just an added bonus.
