Singapore 2013 Public Holidays Released
 
(Posted on Monday, April 9, 2012)

Source: Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM)

Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has released the official list of non-working public holidays in Singapore for the upcoming calendar year 2013.

The main uncertainties resolved by the aforementioned announcement are those tied to the date of the variable-date Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist public holidays.

As usual, and in particular since the 2009 Deepavali fiasco (10-Feb-2009 and 25-Feb-2008), the MOM site points out that "The date, 3 November 2013, for Deepavali needs to be checked against the Indian Almanac when it is available. Should there be a change in date, the Ministry of Manpower will issue a media release to announce the change.".

This caveat is indeed wise as we strongly believe that the aforementioned announced date for the Singapore 2013 Deepavali is incorrect and should be Saturday, November 2, 2013, rather than the announced date of Sunday, November 3, 2013 (to be followed by a day-in-lieu public holiday on Monday, November 4, 2013).

Based on historical patterns, we expect Singapore's Ministry of Manpower to issue a corrected and revised list of 2013 public holidays about 6 months before the announced date of the 2013 Deepavali public holiday (10-Feb-2009, 27-Mar-2008, 25-Feb-2008, 11-Apr-2003, and 04-Mar-2002).
