Legal Holidays on the November 2017 Calendar
- The 10th is Veterans Day, observed–meaning that this Friday is the day that employees and students are given off in order to celebrate the holiday.
- The 11th is Veterans Day, a day set aside by the United States to honor our military veterans. Originally known as Armistice Day, it commemorated the ending of World War I on November 11, 1918. President Dwight Eisenhower in 1954 changed the name of the holiday and modified its purpose to pay tribute to all U.S. veterans of all wars.
- The 23rd, as the 4th Thursday in the November 2017 calendar, is Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Although days of Thanksgiving had been celebrated since Colonial times, it was President Abraham Lincoln who fixed the 4th Thursday of November as the official holiday, by signing a proclamation in 1863.
- The 24th is Black Friday. Traditionally, the Friday after Thanksgiving has signaled the start of the Christmas season, and in California and a few other states it is officially a public holiday. The Friday after Thanksgiving is called “Black Friday” originally because the extra street traffic created clouds of black soot, but also because this is the days that retail stores expect to see their annual earnings jump from the red to the black, or profits, column.
