Singapore 2015 Public Holidays Confirmed
 
(Posted on Monday, May 11, 2015)

Source: Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM)

Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has confirmed the full official list of non-working public holidays in Singapore for the upcoming calendar year 2015 which had been released a year ago, as tentative, due to the usual uncertainty in the determination of the Deepavali public holiday in Singapore.

As per today's announcement, "With the availability of the 2015 Hindu Almanac, the Hindu Advisory Board (HAB) has confirmed that Deepavali will fall on 10 November 2015 (Tuesday), as previously announced".

As we had remarked last year (08-Apr-2014), when Singapore's Ministry of Manpower (MOM) released the official list of non-working public holidays in Singapore for the calendar year 2015, that list of 2015 public holidays in Singapore did not include an error in the date of the 2015 Deepavali public holiday in Singapore. We had surmised that, apparently, and despite being repeatedly shunned by the HEB in our offers to help them make better estimates of the date of the Deepavali public holiday in Singapore, they had abandoned the model they previously used (09-Apr-2013, 10-Feb-2009, 27-Mar-2008, 25-Feb-2008, 11-Apr-2003, and 04-Mar-2002), and chose the date we have been forecasting for the 2015 Deepavali public holiday in Singapore.

In the past, the determination of the annual date of the Deepavali public holiday in Singapore has often been problematic, with a paroxysm reached for 2009 (10-Feb-2009 and 25-Feb-2008), when the date of the Deepavali was revised by 1 month shortly before the actual holiday was to occur. This was followed by 2014 and 2013 errors in the announced date of the 2014 and 2013 Deepavali public holidays in Singapore (07-Apr-2014, 09-Apr-2013 and 09-Apr-2012), albeit just by one day.
