Kiribati celebrates 15 public holidays each year. Seven of these holidays occur within a one week span, giving the island nation seven full days of celebrations.
The government of Kiribati will announce the official dates of the upcoming holidays at the end of each year. This information is published in the Government Gazette and all employers are required to acknowledge and observe these dates.
Public holidays are regulated by the Public Holiday Ordinance, Section 6. This Ordinance has been amended twice to allow government officials to declare special one-time holidays if necessary.
