What is a Bank Holiday?

First of all, let’s understand what a bank holiday means. Unlike national holidays, which are days of celebration or tribute throughout the country, bank holidays are those days when banks close their doors.

This does not mean that the rest of commerce also stops, but for those who need banking services, it is a mandatory day off. These holidays can be national, state or municipal, and directly affect financial transactions, such as paying bills and clearing checks.
