Secular holiday : Abolition of Slavery Day in French Overseas Territories: May 27 in Guadeloupe, May 22 in Martinique, June 10 in Guiana, Dec. 20 in Réunion Island, April 27 in Mayotte, May 23 in Metropolitan France (where it is not a public holiday) In fact, the second abolition decree was signed in Paris by Victor Schoelcher on April 27, 1848. The first decree had been signed in Paris by the French Revolution on Feb. 4, 1794, but had been cancelled by Napoleon on May 20, 1802.


Christmas Day -
Sunday December 25, 2016

Catholic or protestant : Since pre-historic times in Europe, festivities (bonfires, offrerings) were marking the beginning of longer hours of daylight with fires and ritual. The Roman festival of Saturnalia lasted several days in December (gambling and offerings). Germanic tribes also celebrated mid-winter (drinking and rituals). The Bulgarian (with Koleduvane) and the Polish (with Gwiazdka) perpetuate this tradition. Jesus of Nazareth was probably born in springtime (Reformists favour autumn). But in the 4th century, December 25th was chosen for the celebration of his birth by Pope Julius I (Bishop Liberus is also mentioned in 354 A.D.). Thus, a Christian element was introduced in the long-established mid-winter festivals. Before 1582, the Papal States and other Italian city states celebrated New Year’s Day on Christmas Day.
