* Even though they are not official, public holidays, not all Finns work on Midsummer Eve and Christmas Eve. Some businesses are closed the whole day and some, such as grocery stores, are open for part of the day. This practice is dependent on labour union contracts. Moreover, public transport will run on special holiday timetables.

Information on holidays is freely available. However, please cite the University of Helsinki Almanac Office as a source when publishing this information when possible.

The Finnish calendar has 20 flag days (from 2023 onwards 22). The calendar for the Swedish-speaking population has three additional official flag days for the Åland Islands. The Sámi have 12 of their own official flag days. See flag days 2022 and 2023 (in finnish).
