Public Holidays in YN

Postby Costa Azurica » Wed Jun 09, 2021 3:14 am

What is a public holiday? According to Wikipedia, a public holiday is a holiday generally established by law and is usually a non-working day during the year.

In Costa Azurica, there are 8 holidays that are mandated by the government.

January 1 - New Year's Day हारि अनु बारो / Hari Anu Baro
New Year is a celebration marking the beginning of the year, and is commonly celebrated around the world.

March 23 - Leader's Birthday अनिबेर्सारिउ लिदेर / Anibersariu Lider
Celebrates the birth anniversary of Joshua Dela Cruz, the current leader of Costa Azurica. He was born on March 23, 1989. Before his leadership, the leader's birthday was celebrated every October 9 during Steve Burns' term in 1996–2002, and every March 1 during Donovan Patton's term in 2002–2019.

June - Pride Month मेस ओर्गुलिउ / Mes Orguliu
The month-long holiday is celebrated throughout the whole country in support of the LGBT+ community. This holiday was declared in 2020 by the leader, saying with the line: "No matter who we are, no matter who we love, and no matter who should be treated better, everyone must be proud of themselves."

August 6 - Anniversary of the Liberation of the East अनिबेर्सारिउ पाम्बाबासान तेमोर / Anibersariu Pambabasan Temor
The civil war between the Azurican government and the Azurican Free State broke out in 2006, following the control of the states of Upper Coast, Lower Coast (now Costa Azurica State), and Santomero by the Free State in 2007. Providing support for the Azurican Special Force Unit, Burgessia held control over the AFS-controlled states in April 2010 before handing back to Costa Azurica in August 6 at the same year. The AFS surrendered and immediately disbanded as a result.

September 8 - Foundation Day हारि फुन्दासाउ / Hari Fundasau
Costa Azurica was founded in September 8, 1996 when a proclamation signed by Angela Santomero and Traci Paige Johnson was approved by the Nickelodeon Associative Union, thus creating the nation.

November 11 - Constitution Day हारि कोन्स्तितुइसाउ / Hari Qonstituisau
Immediately after Joshua Dela Cruz's inauguration on that same day in 2019, a new constitution for Costa Azurica was declared after he promulgated the Constitutional Bill. This holiday marks the anniversary of the current Azurican constitution.

December 25 - Christmas Day हारि नाताल / Hari Natal
Despite the 82% of Azurican people that make up the Christian population, Christmas is being celebrated as a public holiday. It is a common holiday observed in most countries, celebrating the nativity of Jesus.

December 31 - New Year's Eve बेस्पेरा अनु बारो / Bespera Anu Baro
In preparation for New Year's Day, December 31 has been made a non-working holiday in Costa Azurica.

Mostly all holidays that the US celebrate, with a few exceptions:


February 20th: Independence Day

In my lore, this replaces the 4th Of July. Esthe historians have actually discovered that the day was February 19th, but tradition still celebrates this holiday, the anniversary of the end of the War Of Independence from some RL country that I haven’t decided yet.

October 31st; Deacon Christopher Day

This takes the place of Halloween. It celebrates the creator of Meriduve, the main religion of Esthe. Many Presidents of Esthe have tried to banish this religion from the country, most notably Franklin Turner, who performed a bloody coup in the middle of the Esthe Civil War in the 1950s, and held it for 2 years until General David Birch killed him in the pivotal Battle Of The Shingles, which brings us to…

November 30th: Remembrance Day
This remembers all of the fallen soldiers in the Esthe Civil War. Esthe’s flag is flown at half-staff on this day.
I cannot take any music later than 1980, with a few exceptions.

I’m at the right end of the center-left. You could potentially call me a neocon, because when I bite, I bite down hard.

  • Varies — Houselmas Day
In addition to these full and half holidays, there are twelve remaining red-letter “especial” days upon which divine service must be offered, but which lack any restrictions on trade. Often there are popular local folk customs on these days. There is one for every month of the year :—

  • October 25th — St. Crispin and St. Crispinian's Day
  • November 11th — St. Martin's Day
  • December 2nd — St. Edmund's Day
  • January 13th — St. Hilary's Day
  • February 3rd — St. Blaise's Day
  • March 12th — St. Gregory's Day
  • April 23rd — St. George's Day (Soldiers' Day)
  • May 14th — St. Christopher's Day
  • June 2nd — St. Elmo's Day (Sailors' Day)
  • July 28th — St. Samson's Day
  • August 10th — St. Laurence's Day
  • September 24th — St. Christopher's Day

In addition to the red letter days, there remain a large number of so-called “black letter days” in the Cardican Rite, so-called because they are customarily printed in the Calendar in black ink as they rank as mere simple feasts. Hence, though these days are marked liturgically, and with traditional customs, they are not recognised as days of rest, although there are many customs surrounding them. Popular black letter days include the feasts of St. Nicholas, St. Lucy, St. Anne, St. Alban, St. Silvester, St. Valentine, St. Ursula, St. Boniface, St. Elisabeth, St. Sebastian, St. Uncumber, St. Xavier and St. Dominic.

New Year's Day: January 1st
New Year is on January 1st, as with many countries in the western world.

Foundation Day: February 15th
Andocara was founded on February 15th, 1870.

Labor Day: First Monday in September
The day people take off and are appreciated for the work they've done.

Thanksgiving: Second Monday in November
Not as popular as in the rest of North America, though still celebrated by many. A time to be greatful for all of the things people have got over the year.

Christmas: December 25th
Due to the high secularization, Christmas is often called Presents Day by many Anglophones. A time of giving, and a time for kids to recieve gifts. Traditions may widely vary depending on whose celebrating, due to Andocara's cultural diversity. Christians for instance, celebrate the birth of Christ.

Boxing Day: December 26th
A time where prices are lowered and any late Christmas presents are brought.

New Years Eve: December 31st
A time of reflecting on the year, and preparing for the next year.

Vallermoore's National Holidays.

1st January-New Year's Day
A happy national holiday for all. Since a lot of people drank too much on New Year's Eve and drink driving can get prison or even the death penalty in some cases it is not fair to expect them to risk their lives to get to work. People rest and sleep off their hangovers. Only emergency services work on this day.

March 25th-Easter Day. The second national holiday of the year and it is a good time to feast on chocolate eggs.

April 1st-Not a holiday as such but a time for silly pranks. Even the press and TV joins in.

July 8th-Queen Yocasta's birthday and the third national holiday of the year. There are large numbers of fireworks set off officially and otherwise.

October 31st-Hallowe'en/Nightmare Night

Not a holiday as such and unpopular with many people because of pranks such as tyre slashing and other such things. Trick or treating is banned as people are either too young or too old for it but it still happens. Every year a few people get arrested doing illegal stuff on this night.

December 25th-Christmas Day

The fourth national holiday of the year and a time for feasting, opening presents and enjoying oneself as much as you can.

December 26-Boxing Day

The fifth national holiday of the year and a time to rest and enjoy yourself. Also a traditional time to watch boxing matches on the TV.

December 31st-New Year's Eve

The sixth national holiday of the year and a time to set off fireworks at midnight, jump into the New Year and kiss your loved one.

Some workers get up to a month of extra holidays and others have just the six national holidays guaranteed by law.

Federal public holidays in Radiatia:

Date: Official Name:Details:
January 1st New Year's DayCelebrates the beginning of the new year according to the Noctur Calendar, as well as the Aquilan Calendar and Gregorian Calendar. Sometimes colloquially referred to by Radiatians as "hangover day" due to the tradition of heavy alcohol consumption the night before.
February 7th - 14th (floating)Traiyan Silviu DayCelebrated on the first Monday in this period to honour Traiyan Silviu, the founding father and first President of the Radiatian Federation, whose birthday was on February 7th.
April 13thVictims of Communism Memorial DayHeld on the anniversary of the April 13th Black Friday massacre, when the Radiatian People's Liberation Army opened fire on a group of pro-democracy protesters in Exegrad, killing approximately 1000. The day also commemorates the approximately 10 million people killed in communist-era purges. Flags are flown at half-mast on this day.
May 28th - June 4th (floating)Capitalism DayCelebrated on the first Monday in this period. Was known as "Workers Day" during the communist era, but was changed to Capitalism Day by the Radiatian Federal Parliament "as a joke" after the fall of communism and never changed back. Many Radiatians consider this to mark the unofficial beginning of summer.
September 15thFederation DayKnown in some states as "Constitution Day", and formerly as "Union Day". Marks the signing of the second constitution of the Radiatian Federation (although this was replaced by the third and current constitution 15 years later) and coincidentally marks the date that the "Original Seven Republics" united to form the short-lived "Radiatian Union" over a century ago.
October 1stAnniversary of the Fall of the Radiatian People's Socialist UnionUsually referred to as just "The First of October" and occasionally as "Radiatia Day". Celebrates the anniversary of the collapse of the communist regime and founding of the modern, democratic Radiatian Federation.
December 6th - December 12th (floating)Victory WeekendHeld on the first Friday in this period and is actually an amalgamation of three former holidays into one - "Democracy Day" on December 6th celebrated the anniversary first free and fair elections in Radiatian history, "Veteran's Day" on December 7th was a commemoration of Radiatian war veterans during the communist era and "Victory Day" on December 9th commemorates Radiatia's victory over Rivenka during the Isthmus War. As there is a good chance that the holiday will land on one of the three days, it is usually referred to as "Victory Weekend" and is generally considered to be a time to honour the military.
December 31stNew Year's EveCelebrates the end of the year, although trading doesn't usually cease on this day. However a peculiar thing about this holiday is that it is illegal for any federal or state authority to charge excise or sales tax on liquor on this day, which makes liquor cheaper and encourages heavy drinking on the final night of the year. Many states also temporarily lift restrictions on sales of alcohol to minors on this day, if they have age limits in place.

Federal Public Holidays
Federal Public Holidays are holidays that are observed uniformly throughout the Commonwealth. All citizens, except for emergency responders, are exempt from work during public holidays, with the syndicates organising distribution for those days beforehand or accepting volunteer workers at a significant bonus - emergency responders also receive such bonuses. The practice of 'mondayisation', where a public holiday is observed on the following Monday (or preceding Friday) if it would normally fall on a Saturday or Sunday, is not practiced in the Commonwealth.

The following days are observed as Federal Public Holidays;

New Year's Day - Jan 1°
The celebration of the New Year, according to the modern Gregorian calendar.

Treaty Day - Feb 6°
Also known as Waitangi Day in New Zealand, this day celebrates the treaties and cooperation between those of immigrant descent and those of native descent, as well as commemorating the imperialist atrocities inflicted by the past colonial institutions.

Anzac Day - Apr 25°
Also known as Veterans' Day, this day comemmorates the disastrous Gallipoli landing of the Great War, and by extension the sacrifice of all past and present who have given or risked their lives for the defence of the Commonwealth.

Commonwealth Week - Apr 26°-30°
The five days between Anzac Day and Labor Day, celebrating the lead up to the Labor Day Revolution.

Labor Day - May 1°
Celebrating the global Labor Day, as well as the 1923 Labor Day Revolution.

Stockade Day - Dec 3°
Commemorating the 1854 Eureka Rebellion.

Christmas Eve - Dec 24° (1/3 day public holiday)
The afternoon before Christmas is considered a public holiday to allow all to be home earlier.

Christmas Day - Dec 25°
Celebrating Christmas, the most celebrated Christian festive day, also celebrated secularly as a day of gift-giving.

Boxing Day - Dec 26°
A traditional Anglo-Gaelic observation, where those with leftover Christmas food would pay visit to the less fortunate and give them their leftovers as alms. Nowadays celebrated as a day to honour civic service, and the day that many movies debut in cinemas.

New Year's Eve Dec 31° (1/3 day public holiday)
As most New Year's celebrations begin on the eve, the afternoon is considered a public holiday.



Other Holidays

In addition to Federal Public Holidays, each state and capital city also celebrate a public holiday for their respective foundings, bringing the total up to 13 2/3 public holidays a year.

Easter and Ramadan, as holidays of variable date, are also both considered public holidays, with a duration of three days each, though the practice regarding business hours differ depending on the state. Other religious holidays can be celebrated by the faithful as holidays, with certification from a recognised faith practitioner (i.e. bishop, imam, etc...) and not subtract from the annual leave allotment of said worker - such allotment differs depending on one's occupation, with jobs with fewer work hours typically having less annual leave, and vice versa.

State governments are free to declare new public holidays, either as singular or recurrent observations, whereas Federal Public Holidays have actually been written into the Commonwealth Constitution, and thus can only be modified via a national referendum - it is very unlikely, however, that a new public holiday would ever be refused, or an existing one repealed.
May 25° - Australia is narrowly eliminated from the DSAFF Comrades' Cup, tying with Jerno on points - 1 win and 2 ties each -  but coming short on net goals. | May 7° - The Australics, the National Europic Football Team, departs for Talamia to compete in the inaugural DSAFF Comrades' Cup. | May 1° - The nation begins its week-long celebration of the 101° anniversary of the May Day Revolution.

According to the Common Network of Awakened Cliques, there is no public holiday as everyday to them is a day to "further build the path towards ultimate self-obliteration of the world."
Enlightening the Majority
through Self-Obliteration
Puppet of Zhouran. Obviously this nation does NOT reflect my IRL views, duh. Simply a parody of occultist fascists who have love-hate relationships for world orders and a boner for SIEGE and apocalypse.

Democratic Baolei is basically an enigmatic politically-superhardline pseudo-state confederation of autonomous communes made up of Deranged Cosmic-Worshipping Racial-Supremacist Esoteric Death Occultists who engage in batshit-insane apocalyptic accelerationism. Currently contained by a massive perimeter zone that encloses all of the North American wasteland that is infested with extraterrestrial nightmare abominations from another dimension.
