Public Holidays

Public holidays in Albania

The fact that the Albanian population is predominantly Muslim can also be seen on the holiday calendar. The day of the breaking of the fast and the sacrificial feast are decisive components. The sacrificial feast is celebrated over 3 days.
As the second largest population group, Christians are divided into Orthodox and Catholics. Both are also found in the holidays: Christmas is celebrated uniformly according to the Gregorian calendar, i.e. the date of the Western churches, but Easter is celebrated according to both calendars. So the Gregorian and Julian calendars.
