Well I guess the best way to make sure is to call. They didn't look closed when I went to work today. Haven't been to the bank yet today and that's usually the test. I'm still in shock that the bank was open on transfer day when all the govt offices where closed.

Now I understand why my WAPA bills were due on the 8th instead of the usual 11th or 12th. Seems they will be closed until the 14th (?).

The VI government always closes for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Monday.

The federal government only gets 10 holidays per year and none are at Easter, how many does the VI government get?

Answer: 24 plus all of the administrative days they get every year for carnival, xmas etc.
Not to be outdone, the usps and other federal offices frequently close for VI holidays, they call them maintenance days.
I'm surprised they don't get 5 weeks of vacation per year, lets add that to the constitution. Pretty soon we'll be just like Denmark, a socialist country.

USVI Holidays
January 1 - New Year's Day
January 6 - Three King's Day**
January 17 - Martin Luther King's Birthday**
Third Monday in February - Presidents Day**
March 31 - Transfer Day**
April 9 - Holy Thursday**
April 10 - Good Friday
April 12 -- Easter
April 13 - Easter Monday**
May 1 - Children's Parade
May 2 - Adults Parade
Last Monday in May - Memorial Day
Third Monday in June - Organic Act Day**
July 3 - V.l. Emancipation Day/Danish West Indies Emancipation**
July 4 - Independence Day
Fourth Monday in July - Hurricane Supplication Day**
First Monday in September - Labor Day
Second Monday in October - Columbus Day & Puerto Rico Friendship Day**
Third Monday in October - Hurricane Thanksgiving Day
November 1 - Liberty Day**
November 11 - Veterans Day
Fourth Thursday in November - Thanksgiving Day
December 25 - Christmas Day
December 26 - Christmas Second Day or Boxing Day**
**If you wish to be married on these court holidays there is $150 surcharge for doing so.

Now granted the first ten years of my husband career he did work holidays but he was very nicely paid to work them. Now he's further up the ladder and has a lotta extra time off and holidays but my honey do list seems to get longer 😉 The only feds I can think of that work holidays in the usvi are cbp, the airport never closes and all that. But I might be forgetting someone.

Never understood the allure of camping. Add the sand, critters & saltwater in and I'm out. I like a good bonfire and spending the day at the beach but sleeping there sounds awful. If there's no bathroom I'm not interested.

I always told my friends that tried to get me to go camping that my idea of "roughing it" was the Holiday Inn!

Family camping at Easter on STX goes back several generations. A friend who grew up here remembers camping at Davis Bay before Carambola was built. We camped with the kids when they were small and I always enjoyed it. I do agree that, at my age, a hotel is more my speed.

So I say go for it. Besides, if you're at the beach during Easter week, sometimes people offer you food! yum!

They go all out now days. Last year someone brought one of those huge projectors and it was movie night at the beach. I still went home for the night. 🙂

So I am guessing the Post Office is closed today and Monday? Great - right before April 15.

The US post office is not a VI government office and is often open when the VI government is closed. Call and ask about Easter Monday.
