The Government of Lithuania has announced the annual dates of official non-working public holidays and bank holidays in Lithuania for the upcoming calendar year 2016.
The aforementioned announcement confirms the 2010 declaration of December 24, Christmas Eve, as a new annual public holiday in Lithuania (13-Dec-2010), and includes a special rule for the determination of the Mothers' Day annual non-working public holiday in Lithuania.
The practice of declaring bridge public holidays, compensated by working Saturdays, begun in 2005 (17-Oct-2005 and 28-Dec-2009), barely maintained 5 years ago (29-Dec-2010), and not applied for the 4 subsequent years (05-Jan-2015, 10-Jan-2014, 08-Jan-2013 and 04-Jan-2012), seems to have been abandoned for good.
