Public Holidays

Public holidays in Singapore 2021-2025

Singapore is a multinational and multicultural metropolis. And that's exactly what the local holidays look like. There are 3 general, 2 Chinese, 2 Islamic, 2 Christian and 1 Buddhist public holiday. There are certainly other holidays celebrated within the respective communities, but they are usually not free of work.

The Chinese New Year is based on the Chinese lunisolar calendar, which is somewhat shorter than our Gregorian calendar. The Islamic holidays are also calculated according to a calendar aligned to the moon, but are again somewhat different.

By the way: If a public holiday falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is declared a non-working day instead.
