Immaculate Conception 2021, 2022 and 2023

Liechtenstein is a principality where the National Day is Assumption Day, commemorating the taking up of Mary’s body to Heaven. So it is not surprising to find that Immaculate Conception is also a public holiday. Liechtenstein abounds with holidays, and many of them are also Roman Catholic holy days.

Immaculate Conception celebrates the Catholic belief in the sinless conception of the Virgin Mary on 8 December, which is exactly 9 months before the feast called Nativity of Mary on 8 September. Incidentally, it is also taught that Mary conceived Jesus in her womb exactly 9 months to the day before Jesus was born on 25 December.

Many in Liechtenstein consider Immaculate Conception a “family day” and spend time with family at home. They also feast, see processions, attend mass, and may watch some fireworks.
