The Office of Communication of the Presidency of Haiti has announced that Haiti's President had issued an Executive Order declaring Monday, February 20, 2012, and Wednesday, February 22, 2012, as additional one-off non-working public holidays to coincide with the upcoming Carnival.
As per the aforementioned Executive Order, the public holidays of Monday, February 20, 2012, and Wednesday, February 22, 2012, will be a non-working public holidays for all sectors of the Haitian economy (jours fériés pour l'administration publique, les écoles, le commerce et l'industrie).
Recall that Tuesday, February 21, 2012, is already an annual non-working public holiday on account of the Haitian Mardi Gras (Carnival Tuesday).
Two years ago (14-Feb-2010), the government of Haiti had canceled the Carnival celebrations following that year's recent earthquake (10-Feb-2010), and last year (28-Feb-2011), although the Carnival celebrations were restored, no additional non-working public holidays were declared in Haiti on either Carnival Monday, or Ash Wednesday.
