Reminder: Public holiday next week
Added: 07-08-2019 10:45

It has been a few weeks since the last public holiday, but for those that enjoy a break the good news is that there is another one just around the corner.

Next Thursday, August 15th, is a public holiday in Cyprus which means that banks will be closed as will government offices. In addition many general stores/supermarkets & businesses, but not all, will also be closed for the day.

The holiday marks 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.

This public holiday falls in the week where many Cypriots start their summer holidays with many taking the entire week off from work.
