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.
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".
