Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is an American federal holiday celebrating Dr. King's immeasurable contribution to the United States, and to humankind. Dr. King's birthday is on January 15. Celebrated on the third Monday of January, the King Holiday is a time when the nation pauses to remember Dr. King's life and work, but also to honor his legacy by making the holiday a day of community service, "a day on, not a day off".
