Holidays

A "holiday" is a day off work dedicated to religious observance; to celebrate, originally "to let work rest"; cf. closing time, vacation, or festive day is generally understood to mean a day off work with special holiday rest.  All cultures and peoples regularly celebrate certain events of social or religious significance. These are often specially protected by the legal systems of the individual states. They are then referred to as public holidays.

The term holiday is colloquially intended as a distinction from working days on the one hand and weekly rest days on the other. The week rest days are weekly recurring holidays; these have mostly religious reasons. Judaism celebrates the Sabbath as the seventh day of the week in commemoration of the seventh day of creation, on which God rested; the Christian weekly day of rest is the first day of the week, Sunday, in commemoration of the resurrection of Christ; the Islamic day of rest is Friday.
