This is usually how I find out that it's a holiday. I take a look at the market daily graph, and when it shows a full day instead of a few hours, I check my watch to see if it's Saturday or Sunday. If not, I ask DW "Hey, is it some kind of a holiday today?"

Then you have to figure out what kind of holiday it is:

NYSE closed?
Schools closed?
Local government offices closed?
Trash pick up?
Mail delivery?

If I'm not mistaken, the "Vernal Equinox" was the earliest version of today's colonoscopy........

Well, without them, your investments aren't worth much.....kind of a necessary evil.........
