ALL4’s: Is That Your Final Answer?

Posted: November 26th, 2012

Author: All4 Staff 

Last Month’s Answer and Winner:

If you ever find yourself in a game of Trivial Pursuit and David Constant of ESSROC and Steve List and Scott Kirkpatrick of NewPage Corporation are there, just consider that you are playing for fourth place, because these three gentlemen know their trivia and answer very quickly.  All three identified Quaker Oats as being the breakfast cereal that originated in Akron, Ohio; however, since Steve and Scott are past winners, David is being credited for correctly answering our October “Is That Your Final Answer” question.  With our October question, we just have two more questions remaining that will enable you to qualify for our end-of-the-year drawing, when we will award a $250 American Express gift card to one of our 2012 “Is That Your Final Answer” winners.  So be prepared to answer our November question without delay.


As we enter the traditional “holiday” season, it is interesting to note that our federal holidays are regulated in Title V of the United States Code (5 U.S.C. § 6103).  These federal holidays are only binding on the federal workforce and the District of Columbia although most states observe the holidays.  The first four holidays established in 1870 were New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.  The most recently established federal holiday honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and was first observed in 1986.  Including these five holidays there are six other federal holidays, all but two of which are legally designated to be observed on a Monday.  The November “Is That Your Final Answer” question asks you to name the two holidays, from the unidentified six federal holidays, that are not officially required to be observed on a Monday.  As a hint, one of the holidays will be celebrated next year but was not observed this year.  Good luck with this question.
