President’s Day is in sight. Another 3 day weekend on the way. Starting the year off with back to back months that have a 3 day weekend is just the best. It’s even better if you’re able to take a bit of an extended few day vacation around Christmas. After President’s Day, where do all the 3 day weekends go?

March? April? We have to wait until the end of May! The weather in those months is getting better and we should be given an extra weekend day to come out of our winter hibernation and enjoy the sun! A monthly 3 day weekend would be a major staple of my presidential platform!

Current 3 Day Weekends + Reasons for a 3 Day Weekend Each Month

January – MLK Day

February – President’s Day. To be quite honest I would sacrifice President’s Day for Super Bowl Monday. I’m not at a party to celebrate President’s Day. I’m definitely at a Party to celebrat the Super Bowl.

March – St. Patty’s Day – This needs to change it to the 3rd Friday in March and let’s party. C’mon, what better reason for a 3 day weekend than 1/2 your staff being too hungover to work because they went on a St. Patty’s Day bender. It doesn’t matter what nationality you are. everyone likes drinking and everyone likes drinking with thousands of other people partying. Encourage more celebration, and give the extra day to people!

April – Easter. Jesus rose on the THIRD day! It’s basically written into scripture!

May – Memorial Day Weekend.

June – Flag day – June 14th. Enough separation from the July 4th holiday. It’s smack in the middle of the month. Perfect time for a 3 day weekend.

July – 4th of July/Independence Day.

August – Ok, there isn’t much reason to have a 3 day weekend in August, so we’re going to need to come up with an excuse. National Dog Day? Coolio’s Bday? Patrick Swayze’s birthday. Bam that’s the one! Pain don’t hurt.

September – Labor Day.

October – We used to have Columbus Day, but you know… dumbest timeline. Halloween should always be on a weekend and what better way than to make that weekend a 3 day weekend.

November – Thanksgiving gives us a 4 day weekend, and starts the best stretch for holidays all year long.

December – This is a tricky one, because you get a shortened week no matter thanks to Christmas. It’s best when Christmas falls on a weekend because you get the observed holiday, giving you a 3 day weekend.
