Due to the fact that Mauritius is a multicultural as well as multi-religion country, public holidays in this country mainly consist of religious and traditional festivals.
Mauritius observes Chinese, Hindu, Christian, and Muslim festivals as its public holidays every year. The other public holidays are international holidays (New Year’s Day and Labour Day) and one local historical event (Arrival of Indentured Labourer).
