Reformation Day and All Saints’ Day in Slovenia

Holidays are vital to tradition and understanding and appreciating a nation’s holidays generally is a key think about having fun with a visit overseas.  In our first 12 months of touring full time after retiring from instructing in Texas, we spent a few days in Slovenia and had been shocked that our go to coincided with not one, however two nationwide holidays.

After we plan journeys for our purchasers, we’re at all times nicely conscious of holidays. We discuss what could also be closed and what is likely to be enjoyable to do on these particular days. Typically we plan round lately so purchasers can keep away from vacation points if that’s their choice, or absolutely expertise the vacation if that’s what they may take pleasure in most! Be we completely missed that boat for ourselves on this journey – and it turned out nice anyway!

We arrived on Tuesday October 31 within the little city of Kobarid within the early afternoon.  We checked into our room and set out on a stroll to discover the city.  It was exceptionally quiet.  The data workplace was open so we stopped in to get some maps and had been instructed that it was a vacation and that November 1 was a vacation too!  I had no concept!  I believed for a second about what vacation it might presumably be and almost made a joke about Halloween, however thought higher of it.  I realized that October 31 is Reformation Day in Slovenia. In response to the Slovenian Instances, “Reformation Day, which has been noticed in Slovenia since 1992, marks the day in 1517 when German priest Martin Luther made public “The Ninety-5 Theses”, which sparked the Protestant Reformation.  Though a predominantly Catholic nation, Slovenia has celebrated Reformation Day as a nationwide vacation since 1992 to recollect a turbulent but culturally wealthy interval within the sixteenth century that produced the primary e-book written within the Slovenian language.”
