Thus on Saturdays and Sundays most businesses are closed. But as to shops they are open on Saturdays and some of them are open on Sundays.

In Britain the law does not say what shops can be open on Sundays but it says what goods can be sold on Sundays. They are newspapers, magazines and fresh food. If the law is broken, criminal proceedings may be taken, Many officials and the public demand that the Sunday trading rules should be abolished in the UK.

Most businesses are closed on public or national holidays,

The main public .holidays of the UK are as follows:

New Year's Day Washington's Birthday Easter

Memorial Day Independence Day Labour Day Viterans' Day Thanksgiving Day Christmas Day

All the main public or national holidays in the US and UK are bank holidays, which means banks are closed on those days. Besides there are some other bank holidays, when banks and many other businesses are closed.

The bank holidays besides public or national holidays are:

• Spring or Summer

(Bank) Holiday in May or June

• Autumn (Bank) Holiday in August or September

It dates back to the nineteenth century when by the Bank Holiday Act and a Supplementary Act these days were constituted as bank holidays in the UK.
