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.
