National Socialist holidays

Post by Fallschirmjaeger » 13 Jul 2005 13:10

Hello,

Does anyone know other National Socialist holidays like "Tag der Heiligen" or "Tag der Arbeit" during the Third Reich?

Thanks,
Fallschirmjaeger

Hi,

Assuming that you mean actual public holidays, not just days important to the TR, I will quote myself:

nondescript handle wrote:Public holidays according to the Gesetz über die Feiertage [public holydays act] from February 27, 1934:

May 1: Feiertag des deutschen Volkes (Labour Day)
the 5th sunday before Easter (Reminiszere): Heldengedenktag (Mourning Day; 1922-1933 and since 1945: Volkstrauertag)
the 1st sunday after September, 29 (Michaelis): Erntedanktag (Thanksgiving)
Neujahrstag (New Year's Day)
Karfreitag (Good Friday)
Ostermontag (Easter monday)
Himmelfahrtstag (Ascension Day)
Pfingstmontag (Pentecost monday)
Wednesday before the last Trinitatis sunday: Bußtag (day of repentance)
1st and 2nd Weihnachtstag (December 25 and 26)

In municipalities with Protestant majority: Reformationsfest (Reformation Day)
In municipalities with Catholic majority: Fronleichnamstag (Corpus Christi)
