How many US national holidays fall in between Christmas and New Year?

The United States has no "national holidays". Congress can only designate holidays for federal facilities. If you consider that Christmas is December 25 and New Year is January 1, the only times you will have a federal holiday between the two (from Dec 26 through Dec 31) will be when Christmas and New Year fall on the weekend. For example, in 2016, Christmas was on Sunday so the Federal Holiday was observed on December 26. When New Year falls on a Saturday, the Federal Holiday would be observed on Friday, December 31. When the two holidays fall on a weekday, that day is the federal holiday, so there is no federal holiday between the two in those instances.
