Holidays and festivals

In Holland there are a multitude of official and traditional holidays that the Dutch enjoy celebrating. On the first of January, some Dutch people greet the New Year by taking an invigorating plunge into cold water, for instance the traditional New Year’s Day ´Dip in the Sea´ on the beach in Scheveningen.

In February, Carnival is celebrated in many regions, with traditional costumed parades and partying. In addition, the American tradition of Valentine’s Day is gaining in popularity each year.

The Dutch enjoy a long weekend off for Easter. The day before Easter, Good Friday, is a national holiday but some people still have to work depending on what they do. Municipal and government organisations are closed, however. Searching for hidden (chocolate) Easter eggs is a beloved tradition in Holland.

The biggest celebration of the year takes place every year on April 27. This is ´King´s Day´ in Holland, and throughout the country festivities take place, with everything and everyone decked out in the colour orange – the colour of the royal family, the ‘House of Orange’. In many Dutch cities, the King's Day festivities start the night before the actual holiday this is a special celebration called ‘King’s Night’. Live shows and concerts are held on city squares and you can enjoy the festive atmosphere in many pubs and cafés that turn orange for the occasion, for instance in The Hague, Utrecht and Amsterdam.

On the fourth of May, the Day of Remembrance, special ceremonies are held in many cities and towns in Holland, to remember and honor both the civilians and the military personnel who have died as victims of wars and military peace-keeping missions. On May 5, Liberation Day is celebrated with concerts and festivals, such as Bevrijdingspop (´Liberation Pop´) in Haarlem.

The festival called Vlaggetjesdag (‘Flag Dag´), usually held around the first weeks of June, centers on the arrival of the first ´new herring´ catch in fishing ports. This is the official opening of the herring season and attracts a lot of visitors, especially in Scheveningen.

The summer recess of government workers in the Hague ends on the third Tuesday in September. On that day, the so-called Prinsjesdag (Princes’ Day, also called ‘Budget Day’), the ruling monarch holds a ‘Speech from the Throne’ to publicly announce the political guidelines and budget for the coming year. On this day as well, the Royal Family rides through The Hague in a parade in the horse-drawn ‘Golden Coach’.

The feast of St. Nicolas, who is called Sinterklaas in Holland, is celebrated on December 5. Sinterklaas is much more important in Holland than Santa Claus. As soon as Sinterklaas departs, the Christmas tree is put up and everything becomes Christmas themed. You can visit several Christmas markets, such as the famous Dickens Festival in Deventer. The biggest Christmas market is organised in Dordrecht. Small ice skating rinks are set up in many cities and villages. Holland celebrates two days of Christmas: 1st and 2nd Christmas Day. People usually celebrate the holiday with their family and friends. Nearly every home in Holland has a decorated Christmas tree for Christmas. The Dutch celebrate the end of the year with Oudejaarsavond – the last evening of the ´Old Year´, with champagne and fireworks.

Above is a list of all legal holidays observed in Massachusetts. State, county, and municipal offices are closed on the days listed above. Federal offices are only closed on holidays which the federal government recognizes (i.e. New Year’s Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Washington’s Birthday, Memorial Day, Juneteenth Independence Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans’ Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas). The term “federal holiday” is not applicable to individual states and the private sector since each state has jurisdiction over its holidays.

In Massachusetts certain holidays are subject to laws which restrict the type of work that may be performed as well as the kind of business and commercial activities that may remain open. Only those holidays followed by asterisks (*) have certain restrictions. On holidays not followed by asterisks, business and commercial activities may operate as usual.

Please note: Only retail establishments may open during the summer holidays of Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day. Some businesses may be required to pay premium pay on some holidays. Please contact the Attorney General’s Fair Labor Division at 617-727-3465. The Department of Labor Standards (617-626-6975) oversees the approval of local permits allowing businesses to open on Columbus, Veteran’s Days, Thanksgiving and Christmas when they otherwise could not open for some or all hours on those days.

National Holidays & Celebrations

Holidays and celebrations are part of the Aruban culture. On this page you can find out more about Aruban holidays, celebrations and traditions in order to give you a chance to celebrate these festivities with us while vacationing in Aruba. Or better yet, plan ahead and make sure you will be visiting Aruba during one of these celebrations.

National Holidays

Please find below list of National Holidays that are annually commemorated in Aruba. For more information on what to expect while vacationing in Aruba during a National Holiday, please check out our travel tips for official holiday's page.

New Year's Day

Annually on January 1st

Like in most countries, midnight fireworks mark the beginning of a new year in Aruba. This spectacular display can be viewed from all around the island, but the best spots are probably on top of one of the hills for a complete overview of the spectacle.

A common Aruban tradition on the day leading up to New Year's Eve is setting off a pagara, a long string of Chinese firecrackers. The pagara will be set off all around the island and mark the end of year for local businesses. According to the myth the firecrackers will also keep away any evil spirits. Another known tradition with New Year is Dande, where a group of musicians will stroll from house to house (most of the times of family and friends) to spread best wishes for the New Year.

Betico Croes Day

Annually on January 25th

On January 25th Aruba commemorates the birthday of the late Aruban political leader, Gilberto Francois (Betico) Croes. Betico Croes helped Aruba with attaining the "Status Aparte". With its new status Aruba was given autonomy from the Netherlands Antilles, and was allowed to function as a commonwealth within the Dutch kingdom.

This official holiday features several cultural, sports and musical events throughout the island and there is a national celebration at Plaza Betico in Oranjestad.

Carnival Monday

February 15th 

Carnival Monday always takes place after the weekend of the grand Carnival parades and is the Monday before Ash Wednesday. On this official day of rest everyone can recoup and recover from all the parades and festivities that took place in the previous two months or so.

Each circle is decorated by a local company or organization and is being opened with a small ceremony as soon as the decorations are completed.
