Florenian law defines national holidays as days "created with the purpose of relieving individuals of duties that they may otherwise hold for one day so that they may celebrate on the important day," in the National Days Act 2013. This act defines nine different national holidays, each marking an important event or appreciation of a certain individual. National Holidays are meant to be celebrated by all Florenian citizens, and no religious holidays are currently included.

Days of National Mourning were also created in the National Days Act, and are declared for particular days; they are not annual like National Holidays. They can be declared by the Monarch with the agreement of the Prime Minister, or vice versa. Days of National Mourning are to be declared on a tragedy, to mark an anniversary of a tragedy, or upon the death of an important individual.
