Antigua and Barbuda 2010 Year-End Public Holidays Clarified

Most recent follow-up news item: December 10, 2016

The government of Antigua and Barbuda has released an official announcement to the effect that "the General Public is hereby notified that Monday, December 28, 2009, is not a public holiday".

The announcement goes on to point out that, as per the "Public Holidays (Amendment) Act, 2005 (No. 8 of 2005)" (2005-09-15), the following Monday is a day in lieu public holiday, only when Christmas Day falls on a Saturday or a Sunday.

The aforementioned clarification seems to have been deemed necessary, following the recent release of the official list of 2010 public holidays in Antigua and Barbuda (2009-11-29), which specifies that, in 2010, "27th December will be celebrated as a Public Holiday", without making it clear that this refers to December 25th falling on a weekend, rather than December 26.
