Public Holidays

Public holidays in Argentina

As a predominantly Christian country, Argentina has aligned its national holidays with Christian events. Remarkably, the Solemnity of Pentecost is not a public holiday. Instead, several commemorative days and the famous Carnival can be found in the calendar.

At first glance, Argentine holidays are quite numerous, but often apply only regionally or to specific population groups. Although Jewish and Muslim communities are clearly in the minority, the Jewish and Islamic New Years are considered holidays for them, respectively. Yom Kippur and the breaking of the fast at the end of Ramadan are also non-working days for Jews and Muslims, respectively.

If a public holiday falls on a day that is already a work-free day, the following Monday is often a work-free day.
