Public holidays are usually non-working days during the year established by law. In general, these are days of celebration, like the anniversary of a significant historical event, or they can be religious celebrations. Some countries have national laws that make some or all public holidays paid holidays, while in some, there are no such laws. In these cases, many firms provide days off as paid or unpaid holidays.

Tip: How to use the public holidays to your advantage:
- When a public holiday is set on a friday, take the monday off and enjoy an extended week-end (or viceversa).
- If a public holiday is set in the middle of the week, take the remaining days off, and benefit of a small vacation by using fewer paid leave days.
- When two public holidays are very close together, take off the days between them for a little recreation time.
