The Armenian government has rejected a proposal by the NA Heritage Party to declare April 7 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Armenia.
The aforementioned proposed new annual public holiday would have been to mark the Armenian Apostolic Church's celebration of the holiday of the Saint Virgin Mary on April 7. A decade ago (2001-04-27), in compensation for a new annual non-working public holiday on March 8, the April 7, "Motherhood and Beauty Day", annual non-working public holiday in Armenia was made into a working day.
Following the recent year's extensions of Armenian non-working public holidays (2010-12-16 and 2009-12-05), the Armenian Government had felt that this additional non-working public holiday would be an excessive burden for employers.
