The cost for paid Federal Holidays (ironic that they call them 'Holidays' when we all know the origin of the word, yet religious holidays are called something generic, Nativity scenes are no longer allowed on municipal or federal property and any reminder of religion has been erased) per day comes to over $565 Million. PER DAY! The info I found this afternoon shows that the US has almost 2.75 million Federal employees and the average salary is just under $75K/year. This doesn't even include benefits, AFAIK.
