School holidays :

Bank Holiday (from 13:00) -
Thursday March 29, 2018

Banks only : Commemorates the Last Supper when Jesus instituted the Holy Eucharist (Lord's Supper) celebrates and His washing of the disciples' feet Maundy Thursday is not an official public holiday. But since it is the day before long Friday, many people has their workday shortened, and banks are closed in the afternoon.

Good Friday -
Friday March 30, 2018

Catholic or protestant : The First Council of Nicaea (a gathering of bishops in the early days of Christianity) wanted to find a day to commemorate the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. This commemoration had to be linked to Jewish holiday traditions, since the last supper of Christ was believed to be a Jewish Passover meal. But the Jewish calendar is based on lunar and solar cycles, so the Easter celebration had to follow the same calendar.
