There are 11 public holidays in Singapore. Each Race and Religion have 2 Holidays each:

For the Chinese: Chinese New Year (2 days)
For the Hindus: Vesak day & Deepavali
For the Malays: Hari Raya Aidil Fitri & Hari Raya Aidil Adha For the Christians: Good Friday & Christmas Day
plus the secular holidays of New Year’s Day, Labour Day and National Day. but being French I have to add a few more (especially the one involving food)… so after the Epiphany on January 6th which we celebrate with a Galette des Rois, today is Chandeleur and we make crepes!. I’m sure there are a few more in the coming months but one that comes to mind is the 3rd Thursday of November which we devote entirely to Beaujolais Nouveau 😉
