Public holidays in Serbia 2021-2025Serbia is predominantly Christian, but the Christian holidays of the Serbs are not based on the Gregorian calendar, but on the Orthodox calendar. For example, the Orthodox start of the year is on January 13 and Christmas on January 7. Also, the Easter celebrations are shifted back by 7 days. By the way, the fact that the Orthodox calendar is "different" from that of most Western countries is not an inadequacy. On the contrary, it actually maps the solar year more accurately.
At first glance, the number of public holidays may look somewhat small. However, depending on the religion, there are 1-2 additional holidays per year, which are based on the high festivals of the respective religion.
