2021 Public Holidays Cuba Service
The above is the list of 2021 public holidays declared in Cuba which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Cuba holiday calendar for 2021 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.
The Republic of Cuba currently celebrates eight national holidays each year. Among these public holidays is a three-day celebration that occurs every single year. Another set of holidays turns to a three-day festival, but each day has a separate commemoration event. Only two of the national holidays celebrated in Cuba have a religious background.
The Good Friday not so long ago, in Cuba, became a national holiday at the request of Pope Benedict XVI. The day of Christmas was re-established as a public holiday in 1998 at the request of the pope who was John Paul II, then.
It is noteworthy that various Cuban national holidays commemorate the rise of Fidel Castro to power and other national events that have taken part in the history of the country. Such celebrations are with typical fashion celebrated with military displays and marches, with speeches from essential government figures.
Other festivals are remembered, but not all are official federal holidays: just time-honored cultural celebrations. It may be observed that there are not as many holidays and festivals with religious roots in Cuba as you see in other Latin American countries, probably due to the government's correlation with religion. Cuban festivals are remarkable as you get to hear world-famous Cuban rhythms, and see some sublime Cuban dances.
The government of Cuba releases a document enlisting non-working public holidays each year. That generally occurs at the end of December to establish national days for the following year. Diverse ministries make this announcement each year.
