An initiative is gathering steam in South Korea's parliament to restore the July 17, Constitution Day, South Korean non-working public holiday, which was canceled a few years ago.

Seven years ago (2005-06-21), the South Korean Cabinet approved the removal of two non-working public holidays from the list of public holidays in South Korea; Arbor Day (April 5), occurred for the last time in 2005 (2003-09-04), while Constitution Day (July 17) was taken off the list of public holidays, starting in 2008.
