Bhutan's Ministry of Home and Cultural Affairs have declared Monday, January 21, 2013, a government non-working public holiday in Bhutan's capital, Thimphu, due yesterday's first Thimphu snowfall of the winter.

It is the first time that a "first snow" public holiday is declared on a Monday on account of the first snowfall occurring during the previous weekend.

Last year, Thimphu experienced its first snowfall on January 2, which is already an annual non-working public holiday in Thimpu.
