Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in Lithuania are regulated by Articles 161 and 162 of the Labor Code of the Republic of Lithuania (the Official Gazette, No.149-5422, 2005), as amended by the Law n° IX-926 du 04.06.2002, and on December 20, 2005, and by punctual yearly resolutions such as the December 29, 2006, resolution of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania “Regarding the movement of holidays in 2007" (which has been renewed annually, so far).  Jonines (June 24): was made a public holiday in Lithuania, starting in 2004, through the Act No. IX-1656 of 26 June 2003 to amend and supplement Article 162 of the Labour Code.  Lithuania started to officially declare Bridge Holidays in 2006. To make up for these extra public holidays, there are designated specific Working Saturdays.  2006 Working Saturdays: February 11, July1, August 9.  2007 Working Saturdays: May 5, November 10, December 22, 29.  Independence Days: The 3 Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) share a lot of common history, particularly in terms of gaining (1918), then losing (1939-1940), then regaining (1990-1991), their independence. We have therefore opted to use "Independence Day" for the public holidays that commemorate the gaining of independence in 1918, and "Independence Restoration Day" for the public holidays that commemorates the re-gaining of independence in 1990-1991. Other sources sometimes refer to the 1918 commemorative date as "Statehood".  May Day/Labour Day: has had a tumultuous history since Lithuania regained its independence from the Soviet Union. In 1990, Lithuania removed May 1st from the its list of public holidays, but it was restored as a public holiday in 1996 by the Lithuanian Democratic Labor Party, and again removed by the Conservatives in 1997, to be finally (?) re-instated in 2002.  Lithuania International Codes LT and LTU (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .lt (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Lithuania information and news: Bank of Lithuania (Lithuania central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Lithuania maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Lithuania), and Wikipedia (includes Lithuania commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
