Public holidays in the Republic of Egypt are a norm. About 21 official national days are celebrated in this nation. In addition to the official public holidays, some regions in the country conduct religious and cultural observances. The land enjoys a wide range of festivals in its years, most of which are open to all the masses. The holidays in the country are religious and customary, such as the Leylet en Nuktah - a jubilee where people annually gather to show reverence to the Nile River. That is in addition to numerous other feasts of art and culture. The country is chiefly Muslim, with a minority of Coptic Christians, as well as other religions. That adds to the total of the many religious celebrations in which the Egyptians take part.
A vast majority of the national holidays in the Republic of Egypt are made in honor to the struggle of the nation for freedom from their colonizer, as well as religious equality. Some of the holy days that are memorialized include the first three days of the month of Ramadan and the early five days of the Qurban Bairam holiday.
Concerning labor, many of these public holidays are flexible, based on positions outlined in an employment pact or agreement. The Egyptian Labor Code provides that employers provide their staffs with at least 13 paid public holidays per year. Compensation in the amount of double the typical salary is paid in cases where a worker is expected to work on a public holiday.
