Public Holidays in Colombia in 2024

Colombian Public Holidays blog banner

As of January 2022, Colombia celebrates a total of 18 public holidays. As a predominantly Catholic country, many holidays, such as Semana Santa, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, Christmas, and All Saint’s Day, hold religious significance. While these holidays have spiritual roots, Colombia also celebrates national festivals and secular holidays.

Why is it beneficial to be informed about the Colombian holidays?

For employers and managers, it’s beneficial to know these holidays ahead of time so teams can better organize their workload delegation. This also helps manage expectations and accountability among team members. 

Discussing vacation time in advance emphasizes maintaining a healthy work-life balance and supporting their mental health with their needed out-of-office leaves.
