Public holidays 2022: date of the next in May and June, the complete calendar


Ascension Thursday in May, Whit Monday in June... Le Figaro gives you the date of the next public holidays in 2022, the official calendar and the days to ask for more holidays this year.

While waiting for the start of the summer holidays on July 7, it is possible to take advantage of two long weekends thanks to the upcoming public holidays.

First of all, Ascension Thursday will be an opportunity to bridge the gap between Thursday 26 and Sunday 29 May.

Then comes Whit Monday, which falls on June 6, allowing you to enjoy a three-day weekend.

Know that by taking 17 days off on specific dates in 2022 (see infographic below), you will be able to take advantage of 40 days of vacation in total during the year.

So much free time to plan a stay in town, in the mountains or on the coast, or even a more rare and distant trip.
