The celebration of Public holidays in Germany is unique in each federal state; in a way that, for example, Repentance Day is only a special day in Saxony and Assumption Day is just in the states of Bavaria and Saarland. The only exception is the Day of German Unity, is a federally mandated public holiday that is marked on October 3 of each year.
Numerous national public holidays are celebrated in each state, causing them also to be the de facto national holidays as well. Every other public holiday in Germany is manifest with special events related to the religious or cultural event that they memorialize.
Many Germans are party to these events, and public holidays today are thus an excellent opportunity to rest, relax, and in which to delight. On such times that a Friday or Monday holiday produces a long weekend, it’s almost as a rule assured that families and individuals would make the most of such an opportunity to travel – mainly in the summertime!
Concerning culture, Oktoberfest (which begins in September) is probably among the most famous of Germanic festivals. There are, however, many other traditional festivities in German-speaking Europe, ranging from the unusual "Dinner for One" New Year’s custom to Karneval (Mardi Gras) and pumpkin fiestas around Halloween. Of note is that Germany and Austria are big contributors to the way other nations observe Christmas - from "Silent Night" to the Christmas tree and Santa. But Germans and Austrians have their exceptional ways of rejoicing on Christmas (Weihnachten) and other public holidays.
