Dates for 2021 Public Holidays Confirmed & There are 4 Long Weekends


2020 has largely been an abysmal year so far, what with a global-scale pandemic, violent anti-racism movement and my Aunt Matilda’s boredom-induced tea party all in the first half alone.

Indeed, one can’t help but shudder to think of what the latter half entails if the first half has already proved this unforgiving.

But we can, at the very least, head into 2021 with our heads held high and chest pumped, because apparently…

There are 4 long weekends in 2021!!

Well, that certainly calls for a celebration…

Even if it is a half-hearted one.

Dates for 2021 Public Holidays Confirmed &There are 4 Long Weekends

On 24 June, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) revealed the dates of Singapore’s public holidays for 2021.

And it seems that there are not two, not three but four long weekends next year.

Three public holidays will fall on a Friday, with another happening on a Monday.

February and May will prove to be festive months: the former will have two public holidays back-to-back, while the latter will have three public holidays staggered in between the month.

On the other hand, March, June, September and October are set to be long, arduous months with no break in between.


The last two, in particular, happen back-to-back, which means that you’ll have to contend with two full months of non-stop hustle and bustle unless circumstances decree otherwise.

New Year, New Plans?

While the first half of 2020 might have been dire at best, one should not be deterred as we head into the second half of the year. After all, we still have a long way to go in life;

It’s too early to give up.

And so folks, stay safe, stay healthy, and let’s endeavour to enter 2021 with a peace of mind.

Even if the damn pandemic’s still here by the time 1 Jan 2021 swings by, we can at least take solace in the fact that there will be four long weekends to look forward to.
