In Ukraine, public holidays are referred to as national holidays. Many national holidays and regional observances are based on strong Orthodox religious and cultural traditions. Ukraine officially observes at least nine religious holidays per year. Workers are generally allowed up to three days for non-Orthodox holidays.
The majority of national holidays last two days. Many workers are allowed additional days off for local and territorial observances. If a national holiday falls on a weekend, the following Monday is officially observed as a holiday. In the event a national holiday falls on a worker’s scheduled day off, he or she may choose to take an additional day off following the holiday.
