Lithuanian holidays in 2021

and non-working days in 2021 and the appropriate for each celebration.

Lithuanian holidays and celebrations include modern secular holidays, such as state holidays, various church holidays, and ethnically specific holidays. While Lithuania is a Catholic country, Lithuanians also cherish their pre-Christian folk customs. For example, wearing homemade masks and costumes is an integral part of the Fastelavn celebration in Lithuania. On Fastelavn, both Lithuanian children and adults dress up as mythical creatures. Suitably costumed, they then visit their neighbours and acquaintances to ask them for financial or other blessings. The traditional Fastelavn food in Lithuania is pancakes. Lithuanian folk customs have also influenced the celebration of many Christian holidays in the country. Thus, many important church holidays there incorporate elements of local pagan beliefs. This includes, for example, Easter celebrations: while in many other countries, Easter eggs are delivered by the Easter Bunny, Lithuanians instead receive treats from the ‘Easter Granny’.

Lithuanians take a larger number of days off in connection with holidays than Estonians and Latvians. This is partly because when a holiday falls on a weekend in Lithuania, the first day of the following week is considered a day off. For instance, if the Restoration of Independence Day, March 11, were to fall on a Saturday, Lithuanians would get a day off on Monday, March 13. The same applies to public holidays that are always celebrated on a Sunday. That is to say, a holiday that is always celebrated on a Sunday, such as Mother’s Day, is followed by a day off on Monday. In the following list of Lithuanian holidays in 2021, public holidays are indicated in red, while other major holidays are indicated in black.

We needed a translation agency to have our online store translated into Finnish and were looking at quite a few providers. In the end, we decided to go with Transly Translation Agency and have been truly happy with our decision. The online store translation project was fairly large in volume, and every now and then we found additional snippets we had forgotten to send into translation. Despite this and thanks to Transly’s team being so forthcoming, the job was always completed very quickly and the entire translation process went considerably faster than we initially expected...


Thank you very much for your collaboration! So far, all translations have been done professionally, the translators are competent and the translated texts, which are technical and difficult, are all understandable and correct. The translators work fast and observe the deadlines, which is very important to us. Customer service is professional and reliable. The prices are also competitive. We are very happy with the service and hope to continue this pleasant cooperation.
