Official Holidays in the United Kingdom
New Year’s Day
It is a bank holiday though many Britons do not celebrate on New Year’s Eve.
The word Easter owes its name and many of its customs to a pageant festival which is the name of Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring time. Every spring European peoples celebrated the festival to honour the awakening of new life in nature. Christians related the rising of the sun to the resurrection of Jesus and their old spiritual rebirth. This "holy" day is celebrated in many countries of the world.
Spring and Summer Bank Holidays
The Summer Bank Holidays is the most popular holiday, because it comes at a time when children are not at school. Many families try to go away to the seaside or the country as they may indeed have done at Easter or in Spring.
