2021 days off, or how to make 26 days off from 62 days off!

Calendar of holidays for 2021

I am no exception. Often - like many other people - I am looking for a way to combine holidays with public holidays, statutory holidays. It has been known for a long time that one or two days of vacation, taken occasionally to relax a bit, really do not help. It is impossible to rest quickly. It takes some time to relax, cut yourself off, take some distance, charge the battery. The combination of these two days of vacation with a weekend and, additionally, some holiday can turn into 5 days off, and that makes a difference.
I prepared a little lower for such a circumstance and posted a calendar with such occasions marked for a long vacation, at the cost of a small number of vacation days.
It seems that: this year's calendar is not kind to leisure lovers and specialists in the multiplication of days off. Many public holidays are non-working days, so they do not become extra days off.
Saturday is an exception. People who have a contract of employment, in a situation where the holiday falls on Saturday, have the right to take one day off for that day.
Worse if the holiday falls on a Sunday. Unfortunately, this rule does not apply to Sunday.
In 2021, there are two holidays on Saturday: Labor Day (May 1) and Christmas - the first day (December 25). In exchange for these days, you will be able to take a day off.
There will be four public holidays on Sunday. The first two are Easter (April 4), followed by Whitsun (May 23). This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, because Easter is always on Sunday and Pentecost 7 weeks later, so always on Sunday. Other holidays that fall on Sunday are: Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15) and the second day of Christmas. Unfortunately, these days off are gone.
Below you will find a list of all public holidays, together with the information on which day of the week they fall. Below the list, I put monthly calendars with marked dates when it is worth taking a vacation.

Vacation calendar


New Years Eve falls on Friday and Epiphany on Wednesday. Taking 4 days off, you get 10 days off!

In April, as a standard, we have a day off on Monday after Easter. If you take 4 days off, you get 9 days off.

The days off in May are a bit unlucky at first glance. May 4st is Saturday. However, we remember that for a Saturday holiday, people working under a contract of employment can pick up a day off. If you take this day off, e.g. on May 3, only 9 days of vacation are enough to have XNUMX days off.

There is one holiday in June that always falls on Thursday: Corpus Christi. So the calculation is simple: 4 days off turns into 9 days off.

June 2021 - non-working days and favorable leave arrangement

In November, we can combine two holidays on November 1 and 11 into one long holiday. By taking 8 days off, you will get 16 uninterrupted days off.

December's Christmas holidays are Saturday and Sunday. For the Saturday (December 25) holiday, you can pick up a different day (e.g. December 27). Combining it with the New Year, which also falls on Saturday (we pick up a day off, e.g. on December 31), we get a lot of uninterrupted time off. By investing 3 days off (28, 29, 30 December) you get 9 days off!

    Taking time off for holidays on days off from work is not that easy. The employer sets the days off at his discretion. Of course, you can request a different day, but they will not necessarily agree to that request.
