Nepalese Public Holiday December 25
 
(Posted on Saturday, December 24, 2016)

Ramjee Dahal, the press advisor of Nepal's Home Affairs Minister, Bimalendra Nidhi, has announced that the government of Nepal had decided to declare Sunday, December 25, 2016, as a full non-working public holiday in Nepal on account of the annual public holiday for Christmas.

The aforementioned announcement that Nepal's government had declared Sunday, December 25, 2016, as a full non-working public holiday in Nepal on account of the annual public holiday for Christmas, is in addition to last spring's (02-Apr-2016) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2073 (mid-April 2016 to mid-April 2017), which for the first time in almost a decade (07-Mar-2008 and 28-Dec-2007), had retrograded Christmas Day to a public holiday limited to public servants of the Christian faith.

Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (13-Jan-2001), Nepal now observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays, and therefore the declaration of Sunday, December 25, 2016, as a full non-working public holiday in Nepal is not moot.
