Johor’s public holidays are mostly the same as other states in Malaysia. However it does celebrate a special holiday each year for the Sultan of Johor’s Birthday. In 2015, The state government announced that March 23 would be a public holiday, replacing November 22 which had historically been celebrated as the Sultan of Johor’s birthday.

The change was made in honour of the coronation of Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskander who is the fifth Sultan in modern Johor history. Initially, the government planned to add a holiday for the coronation, but instead chose to replace celebration of the Sultan’s birthday with a celebration of his coronation.
