[size=150][color=#0059ff][b]Non-Nhoor holidays[/b][/color][/size]
[list][*][font=Helvetica][size=105][b]Christmas[/b] ([i]Crīsmis[/i]): As Christmas is not an official holiday in Nhoor, the 24th, 25th, and 26th of December are normal working days if they fall on weekdays. If such is the case, Christians in Nhoor celebrate Christmas on the first Saturday after the 25th, with the preceding Friday evening serving as 'Christmas Eve'. In the last two decades, the practise of gift giving and eating with family has also been gradually adopted by non-Christian Nhoor.[/size][/font][/list]

[hr]

[size=150][color=#0059ff][b]School holidays[/b][/color][/size]
[font=Helvetica][size=105]There are six school holidays, applicable to first and secundary education. Some of these depend on the official holidays mentioned above.[/size][/font]
[list][*][font=Helvetica][size=105][b]New Year's Holiday[/b]: The week in which the 1st of January falls, or if the 1st of January falls in the weekend, the week after. It is therefore possible that most of this holiday falls in December, if the 1st of January is a Friday.[/size][/font]
[*][font=Helvetica][size=105][b]Spring Holiday[/b]: The week in which the Horamhar pw Asw̦qɵƨ falls, or if it falls in the weekend, the first week of March.[/size][/font]
[*][font=Helvetica][size=105][b]Rānnamhā Holiday[/b]: The two weeks around Rānnamhā (flexible, see above).[/size][/font]
[*][font=Helvetica][size=105][b]Summer Holiday[/b]: The last two weeks of July + August until Onam, which is typically the last day of the Summer holidays.[/size][/font]
[*][font=Helvetica][size=105][b]Cetērō̦qɵƨ[/b]: Coincides with the festival (see above).[/size][/font]
[*][font=Helvetica][size=105][b]Autumn Holiday[/b]: The last two weeks of November (incl. the start of December).[/size][/font][/list]
