The Ministry of Labor, Employment and Migration of the Kyrgyz Republic has announced that the Government of Kyrgyzstan had once again decided to declare additional non-working public holidays in January 2013 in Kyrgyzstan to link the upcoming New Year Kyrgyzstan annual public holiday with the subsequent Orthodox Christmas public holiday.
As per the aforementioned announcement, January 2, 3, and 4, 2013, have been declared as non-working public holidays, in addition to the official list of 2013 non-working public holidays of Kyrgyzstan, to link the annual January 1 public holiday with the annual Orthodox Christmas public holiday.
