2021 Public Holidays Morocco Service
The above is the list of 2021 public holidays declared in Morocco which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Morocco holiday calendar for 2021 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.
The country of Morocco enjoys 21 holidays each year. They are religion-affiliated holidays. Being a Muslim country, the nation adheres to Islamic laws and customs. Under article 220 of the country's penal code, it is illegal to publicly preach or talk about other religions, except for Islam. All year long, the nation celebrates many holidays commemorating their religious events such as Eid Al-Adha and Ramadan. During this time, families spend time with their loved ones and dedicating themselves to prayers. Despite the most holiday dates being constant throughout the years, certain holidays are moveable, depending on the corresponding calendar. The holidays include the Islamic New year, Birthday of the Prophet Muhammad, Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha.
The laws in Morocco are conventional and work for the benefit of the community. The workers get two days per month on paid holidays.
As a strategic move by the government of Morocco to accommodate tourism, anyone can visit Morocco without a visa if they come from eligible countries. The government also invests a lot in the holidays, thus making each person either local or foreigner, to participate in the festivities.
Some Islamic holidays require decoration and performances often carried out along the streets, while in other families stay at home for the celebration.
The law strictly requires all workers to stop working during their religious holidays except for specific professions such as doctors. The same law demands that employers and organizations offer those who work during these holidays a paid day off or compensation such as extra pay.
