9 May - Christ's Ascension
Ascension Day a christian-based holiday celebrated around the world. While Norway split church from state in 2017 after a five-year process, the country retains its faith-based public holidays. For most Norwegians, Ascension Day is simply one of the several public holidays that means an additional day off work. The day is one of the non-fixed holidays, meaning it falls on a different date each year.
