There are numerous occasions throughout the year when the sale of alcohol is prohibited, and liquor stores remain closed. If January's dry day is the topic, then there will only be one dry day in the month. Republic Day, January 26, will be this dry day. Liquor stores are always closed on January 26. On this day, liquor stores cannot be opened. We will inform you of the date of the dry day this year today.

When is the dry day?

There is a dry day on the day of several religious holidays and particular national festivals. Additionally, whenever a significant event occurs elsewhere, the government announces a dry day in that region. For example, the day of voting and the day the votes are counted are dry days if elections occur in any area. It is not predetermined in advance when the government issues a separate announcement to declare a dry day. In addition, you can plan according to the information already known about the festival's dry day.

How many days are dry days in the year 2023?

A holiday for liquor stores lasts for around 21 days per year, according to data for the entire year. It depends on the number of dry days in each state and the activities.
