The Republic of Ghana currently recognizes a total of 13 national holidays that are celebrated each year. Some of these holidays commemorated are of religious backgrounds. They often are altered in date each year since their celebrations derive from the lunar cycle. The government of Ghana publicizes exact dates for the national holidays at the end of a year for the subsequent year.
National holidays are a component of the Holiday Act of 2001, which is in charge of regulating the national holidays in the country. Under this decree, public holidays are regarded as paid, non-working days throughout the country. The Labor Act of 2003 states that firms that require workers to remain at work on a paid holiday need to provide their employees a substitute paid day off to make up for the time missed for the actual holiday. The Holiday Act of 2001, governing national days, also states that the Ghanaian president has the power to move the actual day of commemoration for a holiday, should the holiday be on the weekend. Ghana recognizes Saturdays and Sundays as days of rest, and typically, when a public holiday is on one of these days, the festivity is often moved to the next Monday.
About Festivities, they are always grand occasions in Ghana on public holidays— whether religious or traditional. Many customs are built upon long-celebrated exercises, and within each region comes various aspects of culture. The traditional fetes outnumber the publicly recognized ones, and all are celebrated similarly: with pomp.
