Hello happy kinja people from Whitenoise, Hackerspace, Groupthink, Tay, ODeck, Backtalk, Oppo, and Clashtalk, and welcome to the open thread.

In the US, today is Lincoln's birthday, which is a legal holiday in my state, which in turn means I get a day off 'cause I'm at a public university. How are ya'll doing? Anybody else get off today? And what are some of your favorite gov't/public/bank (whatever your countries term is for 'em) holidays?
