Does it need to be a "census"? Why can't the employee just say, "hey, that's a religious holiday for me"? (And you don't even need to see that as a matter of "different rights" according to religion...so long as everyone has the right to take off his or her own holidays it's a matter of everyone having that same right.)

Mayrhofen right now. It has been snowing continiously for a few days now. This afternoon the snowing will stop and we can look forward to a few sunny days until the snowing starts again on Sunday. I'll be skiing in perfect conditions tomorrow

Actually, only the Orthodox that use the old calendar celebrate Christmas on 7th January. See link. Most Romanians celebrate Christmas on 25th December.

For Easter, where there is a difference in dates between the Orthodox and the Catholics, they can take the day off depending on their rite.

For non-Christians, each recognized rite can declare 3 holidays on which 2 days can be taken (so a total of 6 days/year).

It was the only decent priced I could find, had to book pretty late.
But I will only land and sleep there, I plan to visit Lecce, Alberobello, Ostuni and Matera.

Puglia is usually more of a summer destination, but the places you're visiting are amazing
However it's funny because you'll see snow, and it usually snows once every 10-30 years in Puglia!!

I've never been to Bari but I think it's worth a visit too!

Naughty.

I'd think twice about taking a ferry to Greece, though.

Matera is very unique and interesting, definitively worth visiting.

There were no problems, we landed without problems. Regional trains to Bari were cancelled though, so we had to wait for the bus shuttle, got safe to Bari. The people where we stay told us they never had such cold weather and snow for over 10 or 15 years. Temperatures will return to normal on 3rd, one day beforewe leave....

'fireworks' last year in Hilversum, Netherlands. Looks more like a rocket explosion.
