Why does February 15 not count as a national holiday?

July 12, 2021 Comments Off on Why does February 15 not count as a national holiday? By admin

We’re counting the days of February 15 as a National Holiday in the UK.

The idea is to give everyone an excuse to celebrate the start of a new year with a bang, so to speak. 

The reason is simple. 

In England and Wales, there is no official date for a National Day, so the date of the start date of a National day is determined by a combination of the date that the official national holiday falls on (for example, February 15) and the date when a date falls during a specific National Day (for instance, the date which falls on the day of the week). 

The new date will always be the official date of an official National Day in the United Kingdom. 

As of January 1, 2021, February will therefore count as an official date. 

To celebrate the new date, however, all UK residents are welcome to visit the official National Bank Holiday website for a list of all the places and activities available throughout the UK during the day on the date, which can be found on this page: The Bank Holiday schedule In a bid to make it easier to navigate and plan, the Bank Holiday site has been updated with a new calendar of events, with all the dates and times listed below. 

It also includes an interactive map of the locations and activities for each location on the site, which is useful for those planning to visit a particular bank holiday. 

We’ll have more details of the changes in January when we can share more details about what will be happening over the next few months. 

For now, all of the above changes will apply to all UK citizens.

If you’re in the USA, the change will apply only to those who are resident in the country. 

If you live outside the USA and are interested in a National Bank Day in your country, be sure to check the Bank Day calendar in your local language for any specific national bank holidays that may be available. 

What do you do if you’ve been affected by this change? 

If any of the following applies to you, please contact us via the contact us form. 

National Bank Holiday calendar of activities If there is a National bank holiday that you’ve not yet visited, we’ll keep this calendar updated to include it in our UK bank holiday calendar. 

You’ll be notified of the change by email as soon as we receive your request. 

More information about the changes to Bank Holiday can be read in our blog post from February 2019.
