Public Holidays

Public holidays in Vietnam

The Vietnamese holiday calendar is dominated by a conspicuous number of New Year's days. Both the Western New Year in the Gregorian calendar and the Chinese New Year are celebrated. The Vietnamese New Year festival follows seamlessly and lasts for 5 days. Apart from a few days of remembrance, the year is almost free of public holidays.

This shows that both the Chinese lunar calendar and the Gregorian calendar determine the country. Christian holidays like here are not celebrated at all. Work-free days are made up on the next working day if the holiday itself falls on a weekend.
