Reminder: Public Holiday this Wednesday
Added: 11-08-2018 10:18

This Wednesday, August 15th, is a Public Holiday in Cyprus which means that banks will be closed as will many general stores/supermarkets.

The holiday is to mark the feast day of the Assumption of Mary which celebrates the Christian belief that God assumed the Virgin Mary into Heaven following her death.

It is celebrated on or around August 15th in many countries, particularly in parts of Europe and South America.

It's also known as the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God (in the eastern countries), or the Feast of the Assumption.

The week this holiday falls in marks the summer holidays for many Cypriots with many taking the entire week off from work.
