Everyone wants to spend quality time with friends and families. Holidays are a good time. Working professionals can celebrate festivals with happiness while students can spend festivals with parents and friends. Holidays are important especially for working individuals who can stay away from the regular life. They give people a fresh feeling to work competitively.
The state and central governments have announced the list of national and public holidays in Andhra Pradesh in 2019. A majority of public holidays are common among states.
