Estonia's Centre Party has introduced legislation that would make Easter Monday a non-working public holiday in Estonia, beginning in 2012.

Commenting on the aforementioned bill, Centre Party member Priit Toobal justified the move as common sense as Easter Sunday is already a public holiday in Estonia's Baltic and Scandinavian neighbors and principal trading partners.

The last time the list of Estonian non-working public holidays (1998-01-27) was modified was in 2005, when Estonia's parliament approved the Public and National Holidays Act, § 2 and § Work and Rest Law Amendment Act 25 (RT I 2005, 24, 185) which declared December 24 as a new annual public holiday (2005-04-15).
