At my company, we do a lot of alert policy automation using external scripts and hitting the Opsgenie APIs. If I was going to do this, I'd run a script at midnight each night and check if the next day was a national/bank holiday. You could have a list of prepopulated dates, or might be able to find a website to scrape, or public API to find holiday dates.
If the coming day is a holiday, use the Team Routing API (https://docs.opsgenie.com/docs/team-routing-rule-api#create-team-routing-rule) to create a new routing policy that routes to your holiday/weekend escalation. The next day when the script is run, you can delete that policy and things will go back to normal.
