Holidays in Iran
In all countries, holidays have an important role in their economy. In the whole world Comoros, has the least number of holidays, that is one day, and Sri Lanka has the highest number of holidays. Although there are 25 holidays in the Iranian calendar, Iran practically has very few holidays throughout the year; the reason is that some of these holidays are at the same day as Friday and since Iran has only one day as the weekend, in comparison with most countries in the world which have two days for holidays, so it has very few holidays. However, having 25 days of holiday, Iran has at least 15 days more than the average number of holidays in the world. This costs over 40 thousand billion Tomans (Iranian local money) all through the year. Currently, the number of official holidays in Iran is 25, 6 of which are national holidays, 4 holidays for celebrating the Iranian revolution and 15 religious holidays.
