The Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan has released its official list of national and regional non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2012.

The announced list of 2012 public holidays in Bhutan confirms, again (2010-11-05 and 2010-01-13), the re-instatement of the Thrue Bab (Blessed Rainy Day) national public holiday (2009-09-16) that had been canceled a few years ago (2007-01-03).

However, despite some discussions on the subject, 2 years ago (2009-07-29), the Nyenpa Guzon holiday (aka. Ngyenpa Guzom, or Meeting of the Nine Evils), public holiday still does not appear in the aforementioned list of public holidays for 2012.
