Minnesota recognizes the same holidays that the federal government recognizes including Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthday, Labor Day and Christmas. If New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Veteran’s Day or Christmas falls on a weekend, the holiday is celebrated on either Friday or Monday, depending on the day of the weekend where the holiday falls. All other holidays are celebrated on the date established.
