* In South Africa, the Public Holidays Act (Act No. 36 of 1994) determines whenever any public holiday falls on a Sunday, the Monday following it shall be a public holiday.

** In the USA, Diplomatic Missions follow guidelines issued by the Federal Government.  The Federal Government's Human Resource Agency (Office of Personnel Management) determines the work conditions of federal employees. OPM  states that when a holiday falls on a non-workday -- Saturday or Sunday -- federal employees will observe the holiday on Monday (if the holiday falls on Sunday) or Friday (if the holiday falls on Saturday).
