23-12-2014

Many Czechs are preparing for an unusually long Christmas break from work. The combination of state holidays on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and a regular weekend means that a lot of people around the country will enjoy a five-day break, a situation that will not arise again until 2018. After that it will not recur until 2025. Czechs celebrate Christmas on the evening of December 24.
