A festival can hold many different levels of significance for people who attend them. Some events are more of a fun nature and are expected to entertain and amuse the viewers. In other cases, a festival may hold a religious or cultural significance. This can be celebration or remembrance of an event in the past. In some countries or regions, festivals are accompanied by public holidays so that everyone can participate in the events. This is not true for all countries and employees need to apply for a festival leave in order to get a chance to participate. That is why an staff member must submit a festival leave letter, which is essentially a personal leave, in order to get permission from their employer to take a day off from work.
Manager or administration details
The letter should be addressed to the person specifically responsible for granting leaves. This can be your direct superior or HR manger. Give the persons full name, job role, name of company and address.
You should also identify yourself by adding your own complete details. Give your complete name and job designation.
Insert date the request is submitted.
Addressing your boss
Start the letter by using your superior's last name along with the correct honorary of Mr., Mrs. or Ms.
It is best practice to make all business communication succinct and to the point. You should immediately ask for a leave and mention the dates that you need off.
Reason for leave
The next thing you need to explain in the festival leave letter is why you need days off. Mention the name of the festival and what significance it holds for you.
During your leave there will be work that needs to be done in the office. If you have urgent tasks that need completion, mention that in the letter. Also nominate some one who can complete the job while you are gone.
Thank your superior and the finish the festival leave letter by adding your signature and complete name.
