New Year’s holidays in 2022 are provided for Catholic and Orthodox Christmas and New Year’s – there will be a lot of weekends.
New Year’s holidays are a chance for Ukrainians not to stay at home, but to go on vacation or visit their relatives. On New Year’s holidays, there will be additional weekends for three weeks in a row. The first day off awaits us on Catholic Christmas – this is an important holiday for our country, because more than 5% of Ukrainians are Catholics.
UNIAN will tell you how many days off we will get and how best to plan your vacation for the holidays.

On January 7, Orthodox Christians will celebrate Christmas. In 2022, it falls on Friday, so the day off does not translate. Thus, the weekend for Orthodox Christmas will last from 7 to 9 January… And in the first week of January we will only work for 3 days.
