The US will officially recognize Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in America, as a federal holiday after Joe Biden signed a bill into law on Thursday.

Even some of the seriouosly batshit members of the Congress voted for it.

I'm all for Juneteenth.....although many people think it is to commemorate Emancipation instead. I think it is a great idea for a holiday of rememberance.

Having said that, it should be on the *actual* correct date....not the day before. I mean, that's like moving Independence Day just so Federal workers get an extra day off.
Sad that the first official "Juneteenth" federal holiday was celebrated a day early.
Real commemorative holidays should not have their dates changed for convenience....

Juneteenth is a big deal in Oakland, where I lived for 35 years. The celebrations there are epic.

B, I've been making the same argument about Memorial Day since I started this blog.

Question is whether it's going to be a 3-day only on the days when Juneteenth falls on Fri-Mon or is it going to be a 3-day like Memorial Day.

It's not an automatic three day weekend. This is the bill that amends this statute. When read together, when Juneteenth falls on Monday-Friday, it's celebrated on those days.

Juneteenth has been celebrated for years where I live, too.

And I already got it off as a holiday- learned after hours Thursday via email and phone call.

Now if my spellcheck can update and get rid of the red squiggly line under the word....
