Notes

  • French fixed Public Holidays that fall on a Sunday are celebrated on the following Monday.
  • If a public holiday falls on a Thursday, it is common for many workers to take the Friday as a 'pont' (bridge) to create a long weekend.
  • No time off in lieu is granted when a Public Holiday falls on a Saturday.
