State holidays in New Jersey

The State of New Jersey has 12 legal holidays of which 10 are federal holidays.[1] If a holiday falls on a Saturday, it is usually observed as a day off on Friday, and if it falls on a Sunday, it is observed on the following Monday.

All non-retail jobs are closed on state holidays, except few private-owned jobs that may close only on the big holidays. Nearly all retail jobs are only closed for Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. However, some stores might have half day on some or all of the holidays.
