Monday is going to be a problem. How’s that? On some calendars it’s Columbus Day; on others it’s Indigenous Peoples Day. Either way the day throws parents and other grownups into a tailspin on what’s open for business and what’s posting “Closed” signs.
North Texas, like the most of the states, has never “formally observed” the day as anything other than the day that follows Sunday with a hopeful Cowboys win.
And in keeping with this train of thought, for Dallas schools and others, it’s a regular school day. Sorry, kiddos.
But hold your horsepower. It’s an official federal holiday. Confused? So that’s why brick-and-mortar banks will be closed along with postal services. Wink, wink. Your online banking will still be alive and revving for transfers, deposits, etc., but don’t expect Pat the postperson to be in your neighborhood.
And if you’re one of the moneyed types playing the stock market, you’re still game for the day, since the NYSE will be forging ahead … hopefully.
