Following today's cabinet meeting, the Government of Croatia has announced that it was considering the elimination of 3 annual non-working public holidays.
The 3 Croatian annual public holidays facing elimination are: the Feast of Corpus Christi (late May or early June), the Anti-Fascist Resistance Day (June 22), and the National Day (June 25).
Interestingly the list does not include either the Epiphany public holiday, restored a decade ago (29-Jan-2002), or the August 5, Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day, public holiday which has been the source of much tension with Croatia's neighbors over the years (21-Feb-2010 and 05-Aug-2007).
If the cancellations of these public holidays are confirmed, it is not clear if the changes would take effect in 2012 or 2013.
