Here's how Cyprus island residents will vacation :

Feast of the Epiphany

A church holiday, which in Russian is also called Epiphany, and in Greek – Fota or Theophany. In Western Christianity, the name of the same holiday comes from the Latin word Epiphania. Believers remember the moment of the baptism of Jesus Christ in the Jordan. The holiday is famous for the custom of competing to be the first to pull a cross thrown there out of the water.

Green Monday

First day of Lent. This is a moving holiday that depends on the date of Easter. In Cyprus, it is celebrated with a trip to nature and a Lenten picnic.

25 March - Day of the beginning of the Greek Revolution of 1821

It is sometimes called Greek Independence Day, although on this day the Greeks' struggle for independence from the Ottoman Empire and the founding of their state only began, not ended. In Cyprus, it (and a number of other Greek holidays) is celebrated due to historical ties with Greece.

1 April - Day of the beginning of the national liberation struggle against British rule

On the night of March 31 to April 1, 1955, the first attack on British infrastructure took place. EOKA fighters struck four key points at once. In Nicosia, Markos Drakos attacked a radio broadcasting station. In Larnaca, activists attacked a police station, the local administration building, a court, the residence of a police inspector and the house of the Turkish Cypriot Commissioner. In Limassol, a bomb exploded near the police station in the Agios Ioannis area. In Famagusta, Grigoris Afxentiou detonated a bomb near the camp's warehouse and fuel tank.

May 1 – Labor Day

International Day of Workers' Solidarity, Workers' Rights and Demonstrations.

Good Friday

Easter Monday

Orthodox Easter, or the day of the Resurrection of Christ, falls on May 5 in 2024. In Cyprus they rest on the Friday before Easter and on the Monday after. Banks will also be closed on Tuesday after Easter (May 7).

Holy Spirit Day, or Cataclysmos

A moving holiday that is associated with the date of Pentecost, which, in turn, depends on the date of Easter. In Cyprus, Kataklysmos is also a holiday of water activities.

August 15 – Assumption of the Virgin Mary

Church holiday dedicated to the Mother of God. The veneration of the Mother of God Mary is widespread in Orthodox countries, so people relax in Cyprus on this day.

October 1 – Cyprus Independence Day

Cyprus became an independent state in August 1960. However, due to the fact that August is a traditional month of holidays, the celebration was moved to October 1.

October 28 – Okhi Day, or Okhi Anniversary

On this day in 1940, Greek Prime Minister Ioannis Metaxas rejected Italian claims. The Fascist regime demanded that the Greek government allow Italian troops to pass through its territory and provide them with Greek ports and airports for military operations in Africa. Metaxas answered “no” (Greek: “ohi”), which automatically led to the start of the Greco-Italian War.

December 25 – Christmas

December 26 – second day of Christmas, Boxing Day

A Christian holiday when believers remember the birth of Jesus Christ.

School holidays

Schoolchildren traditionally have more days off. The following holidays are added to the above holidays:
January 30 – Day of Knowledge (church holiday of the Three Hierarchs),
June 11 is the day of remembrance of the Apostle Barnabas, patron saint of Cyprus,
June 13 is the day of the Ascension of the Lord, as well as the day of the patron saint of a particular locality where the school is located.

Maronite schools can also take a break on February 9, the feast day of St. Marona.
