Are banks open on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day? This is a question many folks are asking as the turn of the calendar year approaches. 

The short answer is no. Banks are not open on New Year's Eve in 2023. That's because it falls on a Sunday this year, and most banks are generally closed on Sundays. Banks will also be closed on Monday, January 1, in observance of the New Year's Day holiday.
