Which Public Holidays Fall on Sunday/Saturday?

While the holiday calendar brings joy, it’s essential to note that certain holidays in 2024 coincide with Sundays or second Saturdays of the month. These days include Easter, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Jayanthi/Vishu, First Onam, Thiruvonam, Mahanavami, and Vijayadasami.

As these days already mark weekends, they may not be observed as additional holidays for government offices. This information is crucial for planning purposes, especially for those expecting time off or considering events on these particular dates.
