The Minister of Culture of Germany's Land of Bavaria, Ludwig Spaenle, has said he would press for the restoration of the Buß- und Bettag public holiday in Bavaria for next year.

Similar calls are regularly made by leading Bavarian politicians at the end of November (2007-11-27).

The Buß- und Bettag public holiday was canceled in 1994, except in Sachsen, and in Bavaria, only schools have the day off.
