Germany To Consider Extending Reformation Day Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Friday, November 27, 2009)

The Synod of evangelical Churches of Germany's State of Hessen has passed a motion asking the government to amend Article 1 of the Hessischen Feiertaggesetzes to make Reformation Day an official public holiday in the State of Hessen.

Calls to restore the Reformation Day public holiday, either in specific States, or as a national public holiday, were made in Berlin (25-Mar-2009), Schleswig-Holstein (01-Nov-2007), and Bavaria (07-Nov-2006).

October 31, 2017, will mark the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his ninety-five theses on the door of the Castle Church of Wittenberg, an event considered to herald the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.

As an aside, there are also recurring calls (21-Nov-2009 and 27-Nov-2007), from high-level elected officials, in Bavaria to restore the Buß- und Bettag public holiday.
