Are Banks Open on Good Friday?
Good Friday and Easter are two major Christian holidays taking place this week. Both based in religious tradition, neither holiday is federally observed, so most basic services like banks, the post office and general store hours should go unaffected. However, the stock market is closed today, including the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ, and the bond market closed early on Thursday in observance of Good Friday.

What is Good Friday?

In the Christian religion, Good Friday marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, while Easter Sunday marks the day that he was resurrected from the dead. The Huffington Post‘s William B. Bradshaw noted that the term “Good Friday” is such because “it led to the Resurrection of Jesus and his victory over death and sin and the celebration of Easter, the very pinnacle of Christian celebrations.”

Although Easter Sunday changes each year due to its association with the Jewish celebration of Passover, which is dictated by the Jewish calendar, Good Friday is always three days before Easter Sunday.

Pope Francis will lead a Good Friday service at St. Peter’s Basilica to mark the holiday in the evening, with a ceremony following at Rome’s Colosseum, marking the Stations of the Cross, known also as the Way of the Cross or Via Crucis.
What Services Are Open on Good Friday?

Many public schools are closed today in observance of Good Friday, as are many court offices. Additionally, some public libraries will be closed, and the holiday is considered a state holiday in the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas. Indiana state employees have the day off.

Most nationwide banks are open today, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Chase, Citibank, U.S. Bank, PNC Bank, Capital One, TD Bank, BB&T and SunTrust.
