Germany 2017 Reformation Public Holiday Call

The Synod of the Evangelical Church in Germany (Evangelische Kirche in Deutschland - EKD) has called on the government of Germany to make the 2017 Reformation Day public holiday a nationwide non-working public holiday throughout Germany.

Calls to restore the Reformation Day public holiday, either in specific States, or as a national public holiday, have been made repeatedly in past years (27-Nov-2009, 25-Mar-2009, 01-Nov-2007, and 07-Nov-2006).

The date of 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.
