What is a Holiday? A holiday is a day off from work for people to celebrate or commemorate a religious or cultural event. The term can refer to a fixed or moveable day. The word holiday is of varying meaning according to geographical location, and is often used to describe a special occasion, period, or day. Holidays are frequently regarded as a day of rest or recreation, and are often used instead of a vacation in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Many sovereign nations also observe holidays that commemorate historical events.

They allow individuals to celebrate or commemorate an event or tradition of cultural or religious significance
Holidays are days set aside to observe a specific ritual or celebration. They may be set by the government, religious institutions, or local groups. The degree to which they are observed varies by country, type of job, and individual preference. Many countries have several national holidays. Holidays also vary widely in the amount of money they spend on special meals. Some are religious in nature, while others are secular.
They can be fixed or moveable
Public holidays are defined and combined into calendars. Usually, these public holidays fall on the same day of the week each year. However, there are also moveable holidays. The days of the week may be determined by the moon’s cycle, or holidays can be guaranteed for certain years. For example, in the United Kingdom, a public holiday on Christmas Day may be moved to the following Monday if it falls on a Sunday. Likewise, in Colombia, almost all religious holidays are observed on the Monday after the holiday.
They are a cultural phenomenon
The changing of the seasons is celebrated around the world, and many contemporary holidays were originally centered around this time of year. Christmas, for example, developed from old Christian traditions. Yule, the 12 day festival that ushered in winter, was also celebrated in some cultures. But there is more to holidays than just festivities. They also represent important dates in history. And while many people celebrate the holidays with a combination of religious and secular rituals, they also celebrate them as secular events.
