New Year’s Day
New Year’s Day is observed on January 1, the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian calendar. New Year’s Day is probably the world’s most
celebrated public holiday.
Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday, a day of fasting, is the first day of Lent in Western Christianity. It therefore occurs 46 days before Easter and can fall as early as February 4
or as late as March 10. Ash Wednesday is observed by many Christian denominations, including Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists, Anglicans, and Presbyterians.
Good Friday
Good Friday is a religious holiday. It observed primarily by Christians, commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.
It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday, or Easter Friday, though the last term properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.
Easter Monday
Easter Monday is the day after Easter Sunday. It is celebrated as a holiday in some largely Christian cultures, especially Catholic and Eastern Christian cultures.
Events include egg rolling competitions and, in predominantly Roman Catholic countries, dousing other people with water which traditionally had been blessed with
holy water the day before at Easter Sunday Mass and carried home to bless the house and food.
Labour Day
It is a celebration of the American labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to
the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.
Emancipation Day
Abolitionism in the United Kingdom was the movement in the late 18th and early 19th centuries to end slavery, whether formal or informal, in the United Kingdom and its colonies.
Independence Day
Independence is a condition of a nation, country, or state in which its residents and population, or some portion thereof, exercise self-government, and
usually sovereignty, over the territory. The opposite of independence is a dependent territory. Independence does not necessarily mean freedom.
National Heroes Day
Heroes’ Day or National Heroes’ Day may refer to a number of commemorations of national heroes in different countries. It is often held on the birthday
of a national hero or heroine, or the anniversary of their great deeds that made them heroes.
Boxing Day
Boxing Day is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a “Christmas box”, from their
bosses or employers. Today, Boxing Day is the bank holiday that generally takes place on 26 December.
