The Romanian Chamber of Deputies (Camerei Deputatilor), has approved a bill which declares Saint Andrew, as a new annual, November 30, non-working public holiday in Romania.
The aforementioned bill, approved by Romania's Senate last month (22-May-2012), was introduced and signed, last fall (05-Nov-2011) by 43 members of Romania's parliament, including the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Roberta Ansti, and stemmed from a request, earlier that same year (07-Jun-2011), by the Romanian Orthodox Church Patriarch, who had petitioned the Romanian Chamber of Deputies for it to declare November 30, the feast of St. Apostle Andrew, as a new annual legal public holiday.
Note that this new annual, November 30, non-working public holiday is succeeded by the annual, December 1st, non-working public holiday for Romania's National Day.
The most-recently added public holidays to list of annual non-working public holidays in Romania, the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God, was approved by Romania's Parliament (09-Oct-2008) a few months after the Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church had filed a similar request with the Romanian Parliament to make August 15 one of the Romanian legal public holidays (19-Aug-2008).
Before that (18-Mar-2008), Romania's lower house of parliament had adopted a law that added the 2 days of Pentecost, Whitsunday and Whitmonday, to the official list of public holidays in Romania.
