The government of Argentina is once again considering declaring the entire semana santa (the week leading up to Easter Sunday) as non-working public holidays throughout Argentina.
The reason for the aforementioned possibility of a period of public holidays from Saturday, March 31, to Sunday, April 8, 2012, is that the annual April 2 Malvinas public holidays will fall during the holy week in 2012, meaning that combined with the Maundy Thursday and Good Friday annual public holidays, only 2 working days will remain in that week.
