As the Berlin education administration announced Wednesday (Oct. 27, 2021), Education Senator Sandra Scheeres has declared December 23 a day off from school this year. The decision was made in accordance with the school management associations and the board of the state parents' committee, she said. The aim is to reduce stress immediately before the holidays for parents as well as students.

Christmas school holidays 2021 especially short

According to current vacation plans, the Christmas school holidays in Berlin are particularly short this year because certain holidays fall on the weekend. The school holidays only start December 24, and the first day of school after the turn of the year comes quite soon on January 3. With another day off from school, the education administration explained, families thus gain a little more time together and will be relieved of some stress.
