Luxemburg Public Holidays Amendments Ruled-Out

The Luxembourg Ministry of Labour (Ministère du Travail et de l'Emploi) has announced that the Government of Luxemburg was not considering any changes to the list of annual non-working public holidays in Luxembourg ("Jours fériés légaux au Grand-Duché de Luxembourg") in light of the upcoming possible revision of the Constitution of Luxemburg.

Earlier this week, Luxemburg's parliament approved the repeal of articles 22 and 106 of the Constitution of Luxemburg, replacing them with a new article stating that state and church are now separate in Luxemburg.

These upcoming developments had led some to speculate that the Government of Luxemburg would overhaul its list of annual non-working public holidays in Luxemburg, which contain 9 public holidays based on Christianity, out of 12. However, a Government spokesperson has stated the Government's position that these public holidays have now become cultural, rather than religious ("Les jours fériés que l'on estime catholiques sont depuis bien longtemps culturels. Ils font partie de notre culture").
