People are usually allowed a particular number of leaves from work apart from weekends which they can avail without their salary being deducted over the course of a year but apart from that they are also accustomed to enjoy few public and national holidays along with some regional leaves as well. Inside the United Kingdom, there is no single definition of a public holiday that is constituted in the legal framework. In Scotland, the public holidays may or may not exist. It is also debatable. People usually confuse the term public holiday with a bank holiday but it should be made crystal clear that both holidays are two different things; hence, they shouldn’t be used interchangeably where applicable. In England, a public holiday is a bank holiday and therefore observed as a day off from work. However, it is not the case in Scotland. Note that the days are given according to the calendar of 2013.
