The Federal Government of Brazil, through its Ministério do Planejamento, announced the official list of 2012 Brazilian public holidays in yesterday's Diário Oficial da União (Portaria Número Nº 595).

This list, contained in the "Portaria Nº 595, de 22 de Dezembro de 2011", confirms the dates of the Easter-related public holidays and otherwise confirms the dates of fixed-date public holidays.

Despite October 28, 2012, falling on a Sunday, the Dia do Servidor Público (Civil Servants' Day), officially set on the fixed date of October 28, will not be moved in 2012, as was the case last year (2010-12-03), but contrary to what happened in 2008, 2009 and 2010 (2007-12-28, 2008-11-12 and 2009-11-10).

The aforementioned announcement confirms that the November 20, the "Dia Nacional de Zumbi e da Consciência Negra", will be a simple commemorative date (2011-11-12).
