Holiday: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

On the third Monday of January schools, federal offices, post office and banks in the U.S. close in celebration of the birth, the life and the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hundreds of thousands of Americans are being encouraged to remember Dr. King by participating in service projects in their communities, according to the MLK Day of Service website, which promotes the holiday as “A day On, not a day Off."
