A day set apart for commemorating an important event.The term is used often in contracts and leases when computing time,as when a certain number of days are allowed for an action, but if the due date falls on a weekend or holiday,it will be the next business day.Leases,in particular,limit delivery of certain services,such as heating and air conditioning,on weekends and holidays. The better practice is for the contract or lease to define the holidays meant by it.In the absence of such a definition, holidays will usually include federal holidays, when federal offices are closed, and may include state holidays when state offices are closed,if different.
