As Americans celebrate President's Day on Monday, commemorating a new anniversary of George Washington's birthday, there are many who are already looking at the calendar to check when the next national holiday is going to be.

Those who do might be a bit disappointed, as they will realize they will have to wait over three months before the next national holiday of 2024, as Memorial Day will take place on Monday, May 27.
