Most of the public holidays in the Ivory Coast are culture based. With the country being a dominant Islamic nation, the cultural holidays are based on Islam culture, and religion. Ivory Coast celebrates 14 public holidays every year. During public holidays, government institutions and businesses remain closed for the entire day. For the holidays that fall on a weekend, they are compensated with one day off in the next week. Employees have a paid day off during the official holidays.

Religious holidays are mainly Islamic. They include Ramadan, Eid-al -Fitr, and Tabaski. Islamic religion observes the month of Ramadan by fasting from dawn to evening every day for the entire month. Every Muslim is expected to adhere to the rules that govern the Ramadan holy month. Eid-al-Fitr is the post-Ramadan feast. During these days Islam celebrates the end of Ramadan by feasting and a lot of celebrations taking place all over the country. The Islamic holy days vary each year because they use the Islamic lunar calendar.

A few Christians around the nation celebrate Christmas day and Easter holidays annually.
