100. Name two national U.S. holidays.

  • New Year’s Day
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • Presidents’ Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Veterans Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

Many Americans celebrate national or federal holidays. These holidays often honor people or events in our American heritage.

These holidays are “national” in a legal sense only for federal institutions and in the District of Columbia. Typically, federal offices are closed on these holidays. Each state can decide whether or not to celebrate the holiday. Businesses, schools, and commercial establishments may choose whether or not to close on these days.

Since 1971, federal holidays are observed on Mondays except for New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.

Why don’t you get rid of that green card, and move up to becoming a naturalized U.S. Citizen?

Why don’t you get rid of that green card, and move up to becoming a naturalized U.S. Citizen?

Why would you want to do that?

Here’s one reason – you can vote.
A lot of people think voting is a burden, but it is not. Voting is your way of affecting how the laws are made in this country and which people run the government. This is extremely important; there are many countries all over the world whose citizens can’t vote. The people have no control over the laws or the government. So being able to vote is the number one reason for you to become a U.S. citizen.

Another reason to become a U.S. citizen would be to serve on a jury.
There are many people who think that’s also a burden, but if you are accused of a crime, wouldn’t you want someone like you on your jury? Someone who has been through the same experiences as you? The jury determines whether or not you are innocent or guilty – do you want to be judged by people who know nothing of your life?

One final reason has to do with your rights and responsibilities, that would be that most elected officials in this country can only be U.S. citizens.

So, if you vote that’s great, if you serve on a jury that’s terrific,
But if you really want to make some changes, if you really want to serve your fellow citizens, why don’t you run for office?

Well – you can’t do that until you become a U.S. citizen!
