Government offices and businesses are closed during official public holidays. Workers are entitled to a paid day off during holidays.

The New Year celebration marks the beginning of the entire annual festival. The day is marked with lots of music around the street accompanied by cultural festivities around the nation. Labor Day is also celebrated in May to coincide with International Workers Day. The day is marked speeches and movements geared towards bettering the employee's services such as salaries and their general welfare.

Lebanon public holidays are based on cultural music festivals. Byblos Festivals is one of the most celebrated music festivals that bring a diverse range of local and international music artists. Baalbeck International Festival is another music festival that is centered on jazz music.

Religious public holidays are mainly based on Christianity and Islamic religions. Islamic religions celebrate Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of Ramadan. The holiday is marked with much of feasting and giving out gifts. Muslims celebrate Eid AL- Adha too, to commemorate Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son. Christians observe Good Friday, Easter and Christmas.

Lebanon celebrates Independence Day as one of the most National celebrations. Entertainments of different kinds often grace the day. Military parades, cultural songs, and traditional concerts are the order of the day. The day is seen as a symbol of unity and cohesion in the Lebanon nation.
