What kind of holiday is the Great Day of Prayer?

The Great Day of Prayer is an occasion for Danes to reflect on their values, culture and social life. It is also an occasion for Danes to come together and strengthen their social ties by praying in solidarity for the betterment of society. At this time, businesses close early or completely. The origins of this holiday date back to 1686, when King Christian V declared it a public holiday. The Great Day of Prayer is usually celebrated on the fourth Friday after Easter Sunday.
