Czech holidays on PyPI.

Project description

Python package with Czech public holidays.


The Cheese Shop:

pip install czech-holidays

In case you have an adventurous mind, give a try to the source:

pip install git+


Czech Holidays provide simple interface:

>>> from czech_holidays import holidays
>>> holidays
[Holiday(2013, 1, 1), Holiday(2013, 1, 1), Holiday(2013, 4, 1), Holiday(2013, 5, 1), Holiday(2013, 5, 8), Holiday(2013, 7, 5), Holiday(2013, 7, 6), Holiday(2013, 9, 28), Holiday(2013, 10, 28), Holiday(2013, 11, 17), Holiday(2013, 12, 24), Holiday(2013, 12, 25), Holiday(2013, 12, 26)]

Two shortcuts are available:

>>> holidays.easter
Holiday(2013, 4, 1)
Holiday(2013, 12, 24)

Otherwise holidays behaves as an ordinary list. If you need holidays for different year, you can make your own Holidays object:

>>> from czech_holidays import Holidays
>>> holidays = Holidays(2020)
>>> holidays.easter
Holiday(2020, 4, 13)

Holiday object behaves as an ordinary object:

>>> from czech_holidays import holidays
>>> holiday = holidays[5]  # arbitrary holiday
>>> holiday.year
>>> from datetime import timedelta
>>> holidays[5] + timedelta(days=4), 7, 9)

It also has some extra properties:

u'Den slovansk\xfdch v\u011brozv\u011bst\u016f Cyrila a Metod\u011bje'
>>> holiday.name_en
u'Saints Cyril and Methodius Day'

Aim of this library is to simplify work with Czech public holidays in current applications, thus it does not provide any historical data. For example, Restoration Day of the Independent Czech State is celebrated since 2000, but the library returns it also for, let’s say, 1978.
