(2) According to the explanatory memorandum to the draft of the revised version of the Public Holiday Act (Landtag document, Bayerische Landtagsdrucksache – BayLTDrucks 16/15696, p. 3), the legislative aim of the special provisions on the protection of Good Friday and their duties to refrain from certain activities is to establish for the Christian population the external conditions for marking that day according to its significance. Apart from that, the provisions certainly create a day of special silence with an impact on everyone and thus also vis-à-vis the non-Christian or nonreligious parts of the population. For the purpose of a common rhythm of social life, it is, however, not objectionable that the legislature shapes a day in a particular way (cf. BVerfGE 125, 39 <82 and 83>). It is essential that the statutory duties to refrain from certain activities only shape the day’s external atmosphere. While these statutory duties attach specific external conditions to Good Friday as a day of rest from work and spiritual edification, they leave it to the individuals themselves to choose how to spend the day. However, in terms of shaping the extent of protection, the Constitution does not give the legislature the right to choose provisions which would have to be conceived to reflect its identification with one specific religion. The purpose of “spiritual edification” (Art. 139 WRV) has to be understood as a solely secular one insofar as the state itself is unable to fill the external atmosphere of rest and silence with any religious or ideological content. Rather, this is left to personal and social self-determination – including religious communities’ self-determination. Accordingly, legislative provisions solely provide the freedom for a respective individual and collective development. Therefore, the special protection of silence simply constitutes an offer which also leaves room for individually felt needs even if these are not consistent with the legislative motives underlying the purposes of the design (cf. BVerfGE 111, 10 <51>). [...] The statutory duties to refrain from certain activities which are set out to ensure the day’s external atmosphere of silence do not impose any religiously motivated “attitude” on people of different faith or nonreligious people. Subject to the restrictions resulting from the specific prohibitions of certain – publicly perceivable – activities, they are free to spend this day in keeping with their different ideology.
