European Employment Insights 12-23

How Holiday employment varies across different regions?

Andersen News

In this edition, we provide a detailed comparative overview of public holidays in December and January across various European countries. We explore both traditional and statutory holidays, including unique holiday traditions and exceptions. Our tables and analyses offer a clear perspective on how these holidays are observed differently across Europe, from store closures to variations in employee work obligations.

Moreover, we take a look at the earnings of those who bring joy to the holiday season – Santa Claus and his helpers respecting the minimum wages. Our exploration into this aspect of the holiday season sheds light on the varied range of the fees these modern-day holiday icons can earn and the priceless role they play in keeping the magic of the season alive. Under the heading "Did you know", each country also provides a brief insight into special features of labor law and curiosities in connection with Christmas.
