Ducal holidays

Each duchy is allowed to celebrate one additional holiday. As such, many typically select the feast day of their patron saint, since many duchies had no reliable record of when they were first established.

Although duchies are permitted to have additional holidays, federal law only obliges employers to pay holiday pay for the following list below, and federal institutions within the duchies (except essential services) may only close on these days.
