       In ancient times, working people in Britain only had holidays on religious days: Sundays, Christmas and Easter(复活节). Now most people in Britain have about four weeks’ holiday every year plus public holidays (also called bank holidays).
  In the United Kingdom and Ireland, a bank holiday is a national holiday when banks and many other businesses are closed for the day.Bank holidays in Britain(中考阅读) - 称子英语 - 孙广趁教育教学工作室
 
  In this age of Internet banking, the name“bank holidays”may seem a little outdated. However, it is with the banks that these official holidays originate. Bank holidays were first introduced by the U.K.’s Bank Holidays Act(银行假日法令) in1871. It designated (指定) four special days in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and five in Scotland.
  Now, there is a total of six bank holidays in England,Wales and Scotland and ten in Northern Ireland.
  Even though banks are closed on these days, many shops still remain open. However, museums and other public attractions, such as historic buildings and sports centers, may close on certain bank holidays.
