Which holidays should I give my employees off?

Most employers prioritize the "usual" holidays and designate some of those to be allowed taken off with pay in order to attract and retain good workers. Some employers also offer one or two floating holidays to allow workers to select days personally important to them to take off with pay (i.e, birthdays, religious holiday, etc.)
