How many bank Holidays are there in 2024?

 

What is a substitute bank holiday?

When a bank holiday ends up occurring on a weekend in a certain year, such Christmas or Boxing Day happening on a Saturday or Sunday, the holiday is normally shifted to the next available weekday. This allows people who already have Saturday or Sunday off work to enjoy a day of the working week off as well.
