Armenian Public Holiday March 28
 
(Posted on Thursday, March 17, 2016)

Source: Armenian News Agency (ARMENPRESS)

The Government of Armenia has announced, once again, that Monday, March 28, 2016, would be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming "Feast of the Glorious Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ", to be compensated by declaring Saturday, April 2, 2016, as a regular working day.

As per the aforementioned announcement, the Cabinet will move the upcoming working day of Monday, March 28, 2016, to Saturday, April 2, 2016, extending the Easter non-working public holidays in Armenia for 2016.

Last year (24-Feb-2015) when it released the list of official public holidays in Armenia for the calendar year 2015, the government of Armenia had announced that it would no longer declare a non-working public holiday in Armenia for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church, ending the practice (19-Nov-2013, 21-Dec-2012 and 16-Dec-2010), begun a few years ago (26-Jun-2008), of declaring public holidays for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church (07-Sep-2012, 06-Jul-2012, 06-Apr-2012, 01-Apr-2010, 09-Jul-2010, 13-Aug-2010, and 10-Sep-2010)..

However, less than 2 months later (02-Apr-2015), the Armenian government did a u-turn and declared that Monday, April 6, 2015, would be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming "Feast of the Glorious Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ". This was repeated a few months later (11-Jul-2015), when the Government of Armenia announced that Monday, July 13, 2015, would be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming Vardavar (Transfiguration) feast, and yet again when the Government of Armenia announced that Monday, September 14, 2015, would be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming Exaltation of the Holy Cross feast, to be compensated by declaring Saturday, September 19, 2015, as a regular working day in Armenia.
