Czech Republic Senate Votes To Purge Public Holidays Calendar
Posted: Friday, September 21, 2007
The Czech Senate passed a draft law abolishing some of the traditional public holidays which senators considered either historically obsolete or outright alien. International Women's Day would be canceled as would Family Day and the Day of Knowledge.
Labor Day would be renamed as Spring and Labor Day. The proposal now goes to the Chamber of Deputies where it may face more adversity.
