Is the stock market open on Christmas Eve and Christmas? Normally, the answer to that question is no-ish. That's because Christmas Eve is typically an early closure day for Wall Street, while both the stock and bond markets are closed for the entirety of Christmas Day.

However, Christmas Eve falls on a Saturday in 2022, while Christmas Day is on Sunday. 

In order to make up for the holiday falling on a weekend, the stock market will be closed on Monday, Dec. 26, in observance of Christmas – also known as Boxing Day for our commonwealth friends.

Below, we feature a full schedule of all stock market and bond market holidays for 2022. Please note that the list of stock market holidays actually grew by one day in 2022. That's because Congress voted in 2021 to make Juneteenth – the June 19 holiday commemorating the end of slavery – the 12th federal holiday. When President Joe Biden signed the bill, Juneteenth became the first new federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which was signed into law in 1983 by then President Ronald Reagan.
