The Ministry of Manpower took consult from community chiefs who all gave input on deciding which days would be named a public holiday in Singapore. Due to this extensive decision-making, the full cultural and religious breadth of Singapore is dominance in the 11 official public holidays.
There are other days illustrious by various groups in the population but government inference not to make more of them into a Public Holiday in Singapore due to the high cost this would have had on local businesses. If wished for workers can ‘exchange’ days and work an official holiday in order to take a different day off instead. Between these days are the Christian Ascension Day, Muslim birthday of the prophet Mawlid, Muharran, Mohammed and the HinduThaipusan.
If an official public holiday falls on a Sunday it is standard policy, as with other States, for the Monday following to be the work-free day. The President has the discretion to name glorious time as public holidays should there be a need for it.
Almost everybody will be able to illustrious a pertinent public holiday in Singapore; from the Christian Good Friday and Christmas Day to the Hindu Diwali, or feast day of lights, all groups are catered for. Muslims illustrious Hari Raya Puasa or feast day of Eid and Hari Raya Haji which is the feast day of sacrifice or Greater Eid, while Buddhists have Vesak Day, informally and slightly inaccurately known as Buddha’s Birthday. (It in reality encapsulates his birth, enlightenment and passing away). Chinese New Year is a two-day official public holiday in Singapore, a imaginary feast day of dragon dancers, fireworks and feasting.
