Malaysian Public Holidays
by: Sophia

Being a country that has many different races, religions and cultures, Malaysia also celebrates many different holidays and festivals. There are two different kinds of holidays in Malaysia, National holidays and State holidays. For National holidays, all offices are closed for the day except for retail outlets so shopping malls and other shopping and food outlets will still be open for business. State holidays only apply to the different States in Malaysia. An example of a State holiday would be the Birthday of the Head of States, Federal Territory Day and Thaipusam.
