Texas Legal Holidays Laws
Certain holidays, including Labor Day and Memorial Day, are officially recognized in all states. On these days, workers typically are paid extra and certain institutions (like banks) are closed. But each state has its own legal holidays that reflect their unique history and culture. Texas legal holidays include Confederate Heroes Day, Texas Independence Day, San Jacinto Day, and Lyndon Baines Johnson Day.
