Public holidays in Argentina

Public holidays in Argentina (Feriados Nacionales Argentina) are governed under different decrees. Each decree establishes whether the holiday is a “standard holiday”, which is defined as one that remains on its actual date regardless of what day of the week it occurs, or a “revolving holiday”, which is celebrated on the day it occurs unless it is a weekend, then it is moved to the following Monday.

The government of Argentina also often issues bridge holidays when a holiday occurs on a Thursday. They will declare the follow day of Friday a holiday to allow for an extended weekend.

Under Argentine law, people who adhere to the Jewish faith are allowed to take the first and last days of Passover and Yom Kippur (law 24.571) off in addition to the above listed holidays. People who adhere to the Muslim faith are allowed to take off Islamic New Year, and the last day or Ramadan and the Feast of Sacrifice (law 24.757).
