Romania Christens New August 15 Public Holiday

Romania's media has begun reporting that the upcoming August 15, feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God, will be a non-working public holiday in Romania for the first time.

In actual fact, the aforementioned media reports are technically incorrect as, Romania's lower house of Parliament passed the law making August 15 (the feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God, also know as the Assumption) a public holiday, almost 3 years ago (09-Oct-2008).

However, as August 15 fell on a Saturday in 2009 and on a Sunday in 2010 (and public holidays that fall on a weekend date are not moved to the following Monday in Romania), Romanians effectively had to wait until 2011 to take advantage of this new public holiday.
