2023 Public Holidays Myanmar Service

The above is the list of 2023 public holidays declared in Myanmar which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Myanmar holiday calendar for 2023 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

Myanmar has a total of 21 publicly acknowledged holidays. From these holidays, the government plays a critical role in enforcing them. Persons working or the governmental and non-governmental organizations do not work on holidays. They take the day off and spend time with their families and attending to other functions. If the holiday is religious in nature, such as the holidays for Buddha, families dedicate that day for prayers. A holiday that falls on Saturday or Sunday, unlike other Asian countries will not be substituted with a workday.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs gets to regulate the holidays in the country. It dictates that workers are entitled to a paid day off on holidays, depending on their job contracts and employment agreements. These holidays include the Day of Independence, Peasants holiday, and the Full Moon Day of Tabaung.

Some of the Myanmar holidays honor and celebrate the contributions that the nation has on agriculture and farming.

One of the greatest reasons why Myanmar celebrates its holidays is to advocate for social affairs such as the plight for women and workers. Other holidays include Pre-Thingyan day and other events that commemorate the religion of Buddha’s anniversary, his birth enlightenment and death.

During public holidays in Myanmar, government offices, schools, and banks remain closed. Some retail stores are opened for half the day. These shops often run exciting offers and deals to give Myanmar a chance to celebrate the holiday in style.
