Sri Lankan National Holidays
The Sri Lankan National Day is a designated date on the 4 February (1948) to celebrate the Independence Day of Sri Lanka.

Often this public holiday in Sri Lanka is not called as National Day. Even so, the banks, schools along with public buildings will be shut.

The First of January is celebrated as The New Year in Sri Lanka to mark the start of a new calendar year.

May Day is another country wide holiday in Sri Lanka that is observed to observe the triumphs of the workers movement.
