Are Banks Open on Good Friday?

Good Friday 2016 takes place on Friday, March 25, marking the death and crucifixion of Jesus Christ ahead of Sunday’s Easter celebration of his resurrection. As a major Christian holiday, many will observe the day by fasting and attending a service. But that doesn’t necessarily mean your bank will be closed.

Is Good Friday a Bank Holiday?

Good Friday is not a federal holiday, so public services like the post office, schools and libraries will mostly remain open on March 25. The stock market will close on Good Friday, however, meaning both Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange will not be trading.

There are, however, 12 states that recognize Good Friday as a state holiday: Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas. So, residents of these states might find that some municipal services and businesses, as well as banks, are closed for Good Friday.

    Of course the Federal Government does not recognize Easter as a holiday. What do they care about our Lord and Savior–Jesus Christ? That is what is wrong with our country today. Well I CARE!!!!!!!

      It is separation of church and state, the federal government does not recognize any one specific religion so that all religions can be equal to do what they want. You need special treatment?
