The date of Easter changes each year based on the centuries-old calculations that determine the Christian Ecclesiastical Calendar. This means that the date of Easter Sunday can be anytime between 22 March and 25 April.

Faroe Islands, for the most part, shares its holiday calendar with Denmark, of which it is a part. Good Friday, Easter Sunday, and Easter Monday are all official public holidays, and people enjoy the four straight days off.

But traditionally, Palm Sunday begins the celebrations for Holy Week, and some businesses may shut down from Thursday through Monday.

Easter is intensely religious in Faroe Islands. People may even attend church on Easter Monday, which is an uncommon practice elsewhere in the world. Indeed, the Easter Week sees the faithful show up for almost a full week of services. The rest of the time is usually special time spent at home with family.
