Further details about Good Friday, Easter Monday and Easter Tuesday in New Zealand
Easter is one of the most important religious festivals for Christians. In the year, New Zealand has 3 statutory holidays for this festival – Good Friday, Easter Monday and Easter Tuesday.
Usually, throughout the country, most of the shops and stores will be closed and many religious people attend church services.
Not all people take part in the religious aspect of the celebrations and many families will enjoy time together during the long holiday weekend.
Although the festival celebrates the coming of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it is now autumn in NZ. But, the shorter days and colder weather don’t hamper people enjoying themselves during this public holiday
