Well apparently this "holiday" is on June 19th but several banks and credit unions and the post office decided that they needed to close their offices on Monday. And you though the "covid" hours were bad. I'll just end my comments there to be on the safe side. ; )

Happy Juneteenth everyone or as I like to call it Father's Day. The one day where dads get some respect present company excluded I never get any respect. -R. Dangerfield ; )

The Fed will close tomorrow (Monday) because Juneteenth this year falls on a Sunday. And three day long absence of banking services can be problematic if you have, for example, a maturing CD.

But wait. It gets worse. By law Independence Day is always celebrated on July fourth, regardless day of the week. But this year, bad luck. July fourth happens ALSO to fall on a Monday. So we end up with two out of three weeks in a row which offer no banking services for three days running! Thank goodness the holiday gremlin does not visit us again, following Independence Day, until Labor Day!! Enough with all these Monday holidays!!
