    Memorial Day being the latest.

    Why don't they just have MLK Jr Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day on the same date instead of moving them to Mondays?

    Americans also lead the world in most hours worked by employees.

    No one, not even third world nations, work as hard and as long as Americans.

    Except Americans who don't work at all. And I'm not talking about folks out of work due to economic conditions. The career welfare people who game the system, although I'm sure they consider gaming is work.

    The OP is a lair. Canada has more long weekends.

    Family Day - third Monday in February
    Good Friday / Easter Monday - whenever Easter is
    Victoria Day - third Monday in May
    No-Name Holiday, aka "Civic Holiday" - first Monday in August
    Labour Day - first Monday in September
    Thanksgiving Day - second Monday in October

    So, given that Canada won The War of 1812, scoreboard is

    Canada 2 USA 0

    The UK has more 3 day weekends than the US. On average, they have eight every year. This year, they have an extra one for the Queen's Jubilee. So this weekend, the country has 2 days off instead of the traditional 1 at the end of May.
