Public holidays in South Africa 2021-2025
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 South Africans. This influence remains within quite narrow limits. More important here are the historical commemoration days of the country's history. Overall, South Africa is considered a country with a particularly high number of work-free days.
If a public holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday becomes a work-free day. Therefore, Easter Sunday and Whit Sunday, for example, are not public holidays.Back to overview: South Africa
