Bhutanese Public Holiday September 21

The Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan has announced that Saturday, September 21, 2013, would be a non-working public holiday throughout Bhutan on the occasion of the upcoming Blessed Rainy Day or Thrue-Bab restored annual Bhutanese public holiday.

The aforementioned declaration of Saturday, September 21, 2013, as a non-working public holiday throughout Bhutan, is in line with the official list of national and regional non-working public holidays in Bhutan for the calendar year 2013, released last fall (2012-10-12) by the Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan.

A few years ago (2009-09-16), Bhutan's Cabinet reinstated the Thrue Bab (Blessed Rainy Day) national public holiday which had been canceled a couple of years before (2007-01-03).

Note that, as we mentioned when the Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan released the official list of national non-working public holidays in Bhutan for the calendar year 2013, the 2013 date for the Blessed Rainy Day public holiday is odd (our calculations indicate that the date should be September 22) and, indeed, it appears even more erroneously as October 21 in many printed sources within Bhutan.
