The French for bank holiday/public holiday/legal holiday is un jour férié, the German word is gesetzliche Feiertage and the Luxembourgish word is Feierdag.
Luxembourgish organisations and businesses close on public holidays. Although some shopping centres and grocers open for part of the day, the majority of shops do not. Police stations and hospitals do not close. When a public holiday falls on a Thursday or Tuesday, it is common practice to “make the bridge” (faire le pont) by taking off the Friday or Monday so creating a long weekend. When this happens, businesses may operate with fewer staff or smaller family-run businesses may close for the full period. Public holidays that fall on a Sunday are usually observed on the following Monday
