102. Wrong. The US does have public holidays
Federal law (5 U.S.C. 6103) establishes the following public holidays for Federal employees. Please note that most Federal employees work on a Monday through Friday schedule. For these employees, when a holiday falls on a nonworkday -- Saturday or Sunday -- the holiday usually is observed on Monday (if the holiday falls on Sunday) or Friday (if the holiday falls on Saturday).
Friday, December 31, 2010* New Years Day
Monday, January 17 Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Monday, February 21** Washingtons Birthday
Monday, May 30 Memorial Day
Monday, July 4 Independence Day
Monday, September 5 Labor Day
Monday, October 10 Columbus Day
Friday, November 11 Veterans Day
Thursday, November 24 Thanksgiving Day
Monday, December 26*** Christmas Day

For 2012, go to http://www.opm.gov/operating_status_schedules/fedhol/20...

Now if you mean we don't have public holidays on which all employees, public and private are given days off, you have a point. This workaholic country does not believe in giving workers time off for just any frivolous reason. That's why so many people work while sick, for instance. :sarcasm:
