Does the Holy Week end on Easter Sunday? Not quite. After Easter Sunday, many will celebrate Easter Monday — which will fall on April 21, 2014.
Of the 10 largest banks in America, we found that all banks will remain open with no changes to their regular bank hours on Easter Monday — as it is not recognized as a federal holiday in the U.S.
As far as Easter Sunday is concerned, it is considered a federal holiday, which means all banks will be closed. Even TD Bank — which usually has convenient banking hours even on holidays — will also be closed on Easter Sunday.
Observed unofficially in some parts of America
Unlike Easter Sunday, Easter Monday is not widely observed in America and therefore unknown to many people. Still, events for post-Easter Sunday festivities are quite popular and informally celebrated in some parts of the country, including Indiana, New York, North Carolina and Texas.
For example, some schools in southern and southwestern states, like Texas, may not have class on Easter Monday. Although not recognized as a state holiday by all Texas school districts, many schools and universities may be closed in observance of Easter Monday, along with Good Friday, either as a holiday or as a part of spring break.
Official holiday in some parts of the world
Unlike in the States, Easter Monday is recognized as an official holiday in many places around the world including Australia, Canada, France, New Zealand, U.S. Virgin Islands, and of course, Vatican City. In these countries, where Easter Monday is a public holiday, many public schools, government offices and businesses will be closed.
