US Federal Holidays

Builds and returns a list of all US federal holidays for a given year, and provides a helper method to determine if a given date is a US federal holiday. Handles shifting holidays to the nearest weekday if the holiday falls on a weekend.

US federal holidays are as defined by OPM.

Installation

npm install @18f/us-federal-holidays

Requires Node.js 10 or higher.

Usage

To get a list of all US federal holidays in a given year, use the allForYear method. If no year is passed in, uses the current year.

const fedHolidays = require('@18f/us-federal-holidays');

const options = { shiftSaturdayHolidays: true, shiftSundayHolidays: true };
const holidays = fedHolidays.allForYear(2016, options);

// Returns

  { name: 'Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.',

To get a list of all US federal holidays within a date range, use the inRange method. If no start date is provided in, uses the current date. If the end date is omitted, one year from the current date is used.

const fedHolidays = require('@18f/us-federal-holidays');
const start = new Date('2016-02-13');
const end = new Date('2017-07-23');
const options = { shiftSaturdayHolidays: true, shiftSundayHolidays: true };
const holidays = fedHolidays.federalHolidaysInRange(start, end, options);

// Returns

To determine if a date is a federal holiday, use the isAHoliday method. If no argument is provided, defaults to the current date:

const fedHolidays = require("@18f/us-federal-holidays");

const options = {
  shiftSaturdayHolidays: true,
  shiftSundayHolidays: true,
  utc: false
};
const isAHoliday = fedHolidays.isAHoliday(myDate, options);
// Returns true or false

All three methods take options as a second argument. This argument is a plain object which accepts the following properties:

{
  // Whether or not holidays that fall on Saturdays should be
  // shifted to Friday observance. If you don't follow the
  // US federal standard for observing holidays on weekends,
  // you can adjust by setting this value to false.
  // Default value is true.
  shiftSaturdayHolidays: boolean,

  // Whether or not holidays that fall on Sundays should be
  // shifted to Monday observance. If you don't follow the
  // US federal standard for observing holidays on weekends,
  // you can adjust by setting this value to false.
  // Default value is true.
  shiftSundayHolidays: boolean
}

Additionally, isAHoliday takes an options.utc parameter:

{
  // Whether to treat the first argument as a UTC date instead
  // of the local time.  Defaults to false.  This is useful if
  // you're generating dates from UTC timestamps or otherwise
  // creating objects from UTC-based dates.
  // Default value is false.
  // This option only applies to the isAHoliday method.
  utc: boolean;
}
