The Romanian Senate has approved a draft bill which would declare the Feast of Saint Andrew, as a new annual, November 30, non-working public holiday in Romania.

The aforementioned bill was introduced and signed, last fall (2011-11-05) 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 (2011-06-07), 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.

The bill now goes to the Romanian Chamber of Deputies (Camerei Deputatilor) for final approval.
