All federal holidays are celebrated in California, including Labor Day, New Year’s Day and Veteran’s Day. In addition, California recognizes the day after Thanksgiving as a holiday.
California also celebrates Cesar Chavez Day. The holiday is celebrated on March 31 in honor of a migrant farm worker who co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, focusing attention on the plight of migrant farm workers in the United States. There has been a recent push to make Cesar Chavez Day a national holiday.
If a holiday falls on a Saturday, it is celebrated on the day before and if it falls on a Sunday, it is celebrated the day after.
