Executive Order declares December 24, 2012 a federal holiday

President Obama has issued an executive order that closes all executive branch offices and agencies on Monday, December 24, 2012.

For the patent and trademark community, this means that most U.S. Patent and Trademark Office filings that were due on December 24 are now due December 26, which is the next day that the USPTO will be open.

The full text of the executive order is available here.
