Latvia's Welfare Ministry has announced that, in accordance with the government resolution adopted last year, Monday, June 22, 2009, would be a one-off bridge public holiday, creating a 5-day period of public holidays, from Saturday, June 20, to Wednesday, June 24, 2009.
In compensation, Saturday, June 27, 2009, will be a regular working day.
This swap of a weekday working day for a working Saturday is a regular feature of recent Latvian public holidays calendars (2007-04-13 and 2006-11-25).
