2011 Stock Market Holidays

And now, without further ado, I give you this year’s U.S. stock market holidays. These coveted days sprinkled across the calendar give us a legitimate reason to stay out of the office, something to celebrate, and are great for planning extended weekend vacations around. May you make the most of yours!

* We got jipped this year!

**Despite technically having the day off, I opted to work in exchange for a free day later in the year. The way I see it, I’d much rather spend a precious day off work traveling the globe than hanging around Memphis on a dreary Monday in February. But that’s just me.
