At the turn of 2023 and 2024, by taking six days of annual leave, you can extend the Christmas break and increase the number of days off to 16. We explain which days to take leave and the best way to do it.

In 2023, Christmas Eve falls on Sunday, then on Monday and Tuesday, i.e. December 25 and 26, there are two public holidays due to Christmas. The next day off is New Year’s Monday, January 1, 2024.

“Therefore, if you submit a leave application to your employer for 3 days of leave, i.e. for the period from December 27 to 29, you will extend your Christmas break to 9 days, working from Monday to Friday,” said the accounting and technology company InFakt in press release.

The next public holiday is January 6. Epiphany in 2024 is on a Saturday, which means that “the employer must grant an additional day off in a given working time settlement period.” Therefore, if you work in a one-month settlement period, the employer must ‘give’ an additional day off work for Epiphany in January – explained InFakt.

– The employer sets the day off independently, but may take your request into account. If you do not receive a day off in a given settlement period, the employer will be obliged to pay you remuneration for overtime work – explained Paulina Włodarczyk, inFak’s accountant, quoted in the release.

Therefore, if we receive one day off for January 6 and use it from January 2 to January 5, and additionally use 3 days of leave on the remaining days, the time off can be extended up to 16 days. “This is undoubtedly a very tempting proposition,” said InFakt.

Days off from work in 2024

In Poland we have as many as 13 public holidays:

– January 1 – New Year – January 6 – Epiphany – First day of Easter – May 1 – National Day – May 3 – Constitution Day of the Third of May – First day of Pentecost – Corpus Christi Day – August 15 – church holiday of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – November 1 – All Saints’ Day – November 11 – National Independence Day – December 25 – First Day of Christmas – December 26 – Second Day of Christmas

“The regulations specify permanent non-working days (e.g. January 1 and 6) and movable holidays, such as Epiphany. In addition, in accordance with the regulations, non-working days also include all Sundays. This means that in these dates, you are entitled to a day off, in addition to your entitlement to holiday leave. These are ‘extra days off’, so it is worth analyzing when particular holidays fall in order to plan possible longer holidays, such as the May weekend,” InFakt reported.
