Public Holidays

Public holidays in New Zealand

The New Zealand holidays are based on the Christian holidays. Pentecost is not celebrated. Unlike many other countries, New Zealand has a special feature: If a public holiday falls on a weekend, the following Monday is a day off.
In addition to the national public holidays, each province of New Zealand also has its own holiday, which it may determine for itself. These days are also called Provincial Anniversary Days.
