The Nepalese Government has declared a one-off public holiday for Tuesday, June 28, 2011, on account of the upcoming Bhoto Jatra festival.
Last year (26-Jun-2010), the government of Nepal had similarly declared Sunday, June 27, 2010, a one-off regional public holiday on account of that year's Bhotojatra festival. Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (13-Jan-2001), Nepal observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays, meaning that Sunday is normally a regular working day.
In related news (17-Jun-2011), the government of Nepal had also announced that the date of the upcoming National Census Day 2011, on Friday, July 22, 2011, would be an official non-working public holiday throughout Nepal.
