Holidays 2024: When the Holy Spirit falls and when is the “hidden” 4 days

This year, the Holy Week of the Lord’s Passions begins on 29 April (Great Monday), when he drops it on 5 May 2024. Fifty days after the resurrection of the Lord and ten days after His Ascension to the heavens, our Church celebrates the great despotic feast of Christianity that is Pentecost. Pentecost is a mobile holiday, always falls Sunday and its date is determined by Easter. On this day, according to the New Testament, the epiphany of the Holy Spirit took place on the heads of the twelve disciples of Christ in the form of fiery languages, so as to illuminate and preach the Gospel to the ends of the inhabited earth. The very next day, our Church honors the Holy Spirit (Monday 24 June 2024) which is one of the three prepositions or persons of the Holy Trinity, namely the one and only God. It is worth noting that this day is not a holiday for all sectors. However, after the three days of Clean Monday, that of March 25th, as well as Easter holidays, workers will have a chance to rest more this year, since they have a four-day ‘hidden’ in front of them. This is because this year May 2024 coincides with Great Wednesday (May 1, 2024), but it is transferred for Tuesday, May 7, immediately after Easter Monday, following a decision by the Minister of Labour and Social Security, Domna Mechaelidou. Therefore, there are few who will choose to make a close escape, taking advantage of the sunny weather and holiday of Labor Day.
