The President of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Islam Karimov, has signed the Resolution "On moving day off from Saturday, 31 December 2011, to Monday, 2 January 2012", which declares Monday, January 2, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Uzbekistan.

As usual in such cases of declaring one-off non-working public holidays in Uzbekistan (2011-08-25, 2011-03-01, 2009-11-25, 2008-12-25, 2007-12-25, 2006-05-01, 2005-12-28 and 2005-12-05), the aforementioned non-working public holiday is to be compensated by having Satuday, December 31, 2011, declared a regular working day in Uzbekistan.

The oddity about the aforementioned announcement is that it does not create a bridge holiday; it simply moves that Saturday/Sunday public holidays to Sunday/Monday.

According the presidential press release, the resolution was adopted "to create favourable conditions for rest of population in connection with celebrations of New Year".
