2020 Public Holidays Syria Service

The above is the list of 2020 public holidays declared in Syria which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Syria holiday calendar for 2020 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

The Syrian Arab Republic marks a blend of religious, cultural, and nationalism holidays. They are celebrated with great enthusiasm, the leading national holiday being Evacuation Day. The holiday is commemorated annually on the 17th of April, celebrating the evacuation of the French military's last battalion in Syria. The move formally marked the end of the French Mandate for Syria.

The Syrian government announces official dates for bank holidays and national holidays for each calendar year. The government authority also has the power to declare public holidays as the need arises. As for the Christian Easter holiday, both days are marked and considered national public holidays not limited to members of the Christian faith only but all workers in the middle east nation. All workers get a day off except those on an arranged work model requiring them to attend work at usually extra pay or existing agreements between employers and employees. As is the situation in most nations worldwide, business services are adversely affected. Interestingly, the weekend is Friday and Saturday.

As for religious holidays marked in the nation, religious calendars may be subject to local alterations, mainly attributed to varying interpretations among different religious authorities. Other changes in the marking of holidays may occur due to conflicts with other scheduled holidays marked in the nation. Islamic holidays are a serious engagement as it is the country's predominant religion. Current statistics place the number of Muslims at 87 percent. Their chief celebration is Eid al-Fitr, which occurs in August each year, accompanied by great feasts, marking the end of Ramadan's holy month.
