Formula fix for vlookup and iserror

I'm trying to get a formula that looks up the date in that column and compares it to a list of holidays. If there's a holiday I want it to report the holiday name.  If there isn't a holiday then I just want it to lookup and report the day (e.g., Monday).  

I'm having a problem getting it right when the date is a holiday. For instance, 4/14/17 is a holiday (Good Friday) so I want it to report "Good Friday" but it's reporting FALSE.  I think I don't have enough arguments in the formula for when it doesn't find the current date in the holiday list.  

See example attached, cell P66.

Thank you

You can use below formula in C2 and drag around the columns.
=IF(C$3="","",IFERROR(VLOOKUP(C$3,Holidays!$B:$C,2,0),TEXT(C$3,"DDDD")))
