Public holidays in South Africa 2018-2022
South Africa is traditionally a country with many ethnic groups and religions. A clear influence of the Christian church on the holiday calendar cannot be denied to the South Africans. This, however, is kept within rather narrow limits. More important here are the historical days of commemoration of the country's history.
Overall, South Africa is considered a country with a particularly high number of days off. If a public holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday becomes a day off. Therefore, Easter Sunday and Pentecost Sunday, for example, are not public holidays.Back to overview: South Africa
