According to articles 161 and 162 of the Lithuanian Labour code, as amended on December 20, 2005, beginning with 2006, all holidays in Lithuania falling on a Saturday or Sunday are moved to the next Monday.

This rule also applies to all holidays, without any exception, even those which are always celebrated on a Sunday, such as Mothers' Day and Easter Sunday, thus creating a new, de facto, Easter Tuesday public holiday in Lithuania.
