The above is the list of 2021 public holidays declared in Guatemala which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Guatemala holiday calendar for 2021 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.
The people of the Republic of Guatemala officially celebrate at least 12 official public holidays each year. The majority of the public holidays in the land are based on Christian principles. Certain observances made are unique to some territories in the nation of Guatemala.
Concerning the celebration, a Guatemalan year has a great variety of public holidays, fiestas, and festivities. Some of these celebrations may be small and limited to a village, but others are ordinarily witnessed countrywide. The festivities of the Guatemalan people are typically colorful and fun to see. The effervescent and diverse culture of the people in this land makes their celebrations incredibly beautiful. In addition to the people’s religious exercises, which are a blend of spiritual beliefs and indigenous customs, it forms a richly mixed culture that celebrates in a grand style. Guatemala is a country awash with strong Roman Catholic inspirations, owing to the Spanish regime, and the practices and history of the country are beset with Mayan influences. The culture here is, in true Latin spirit, visibly vibrant as seen in each of the fiestas in Guatemala, beginning from New Year’s Day through to Navidad (Christmas). An instance of a holiday celebrated in style is Guatemala's Independence Day, observed on September 15. The public holiday is enjoyed like others in Guatemala — with song and dance, parades, fanfare, food, and fireworks.
The country's labor laws dictate that all workers receive pay on each of the recognized public holidays, but only at the discretion of their employers.
