The Serbian Parliament has approved amending the "Law on State Holidays" by extending the list of annual non-working public holidays in Serbia, beginning in 2012.
The aforementioned amendments to the "Law on State Holidays" of Serbia, extend the duration of Serbia's Statehood Day (aka Sretenje) from 1 to 2 days (as are the January 1st and May 1st annual public holidays).
The October 21 holiday which was at the root of the current series of amendments (15-Jul-2011) ended-up being declared as a "working holiday" while in a last-minute development which took all observers by surprise, a non-working public holiday was added on November 11, to commemorate the 1918 armistice.
The Day of Remembrance for the victims of the Holocaust (April 22), was also declared as an observance holiday (ie. working day).
The aforementioned changes will take effect in 2012.
