A public holiday, national holiday, legal holiday (or federal holiday in the US) is a holiday generally established by law and is usually a non-working day during the year. World countries and territories observe holidays based on events of significance to their history, such as the National Day or Independence Day.
The public holidays are generally days of celebration, like the anniversary of a significant historical event, or can be a religious celebration like Eid al-Fitr, Christmas, or Diwali. Holidays can land on a specific day of the year, be tied to a certain day of the week in a certain month or follow other calendar systems like the Lunar Calendar.
