DanskeHelligdage

DESCRIPTION:

Add support for public holidays in Denmark in the Date class

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

Uses the list of public holidays in Denmark found in www.borger.dk/Emner/samfundogrettigheder/kirkeogtro/Sider/officiellehelligedage.aspx

SYNOPSIS:

Require it

require 'danske_helligdage'

Get the name of a public holiday

Date.civil(2008, 12, 25).helligdag returns 'Juledag'

Ask whether a date is a public holiday

Date.civil(2008, 12, 25).helligdag? returns true

Ask whether a date is a working day

Date.civil(2008, 12, 25).arbejdsdag? returns false

Get the number of working days for a given month

Date.arbejdsdage(2008, 1) returns 22

Or for a specific period

Date.arbejdsdage_i_periode(Date.civil(2008, 1, 1), Date.civil(2008, 12, 31)) returns 253

Note that 1. maj, grundlovsdag and juleaftensdag are not official Danish public holidays, so to enable them you do something like this

require 'danske_helligdage'
require 'danske_helligdage/juleaftensdag'

Then all of the methods above will take juleaftensdag into consideration.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • None
