The Bank of Greece, Greece's Central Bank, has released the list of official non-working public holidays in Greece for the calendar year 2014.

As per custom (2013-04-23, 2012-07-28, 2011-07-25, 2010-06-25, 2009-06-30 and 2008-07-21), the aforementioned list omits public holidays that fall on a Saturday or Sunday, and which are not compensated under Greek labour law.

Note that the aforementioned announced list of official non-working public holidays in Greece for the calendar year 2014 omits the May 1st, 2014, annual non-working public holiday, but does state that "the observance of Thursday, May 1st, 2014 as a holiday by the Bank of Greece will be subject to a decision by the Minister of Labour, Social Security and Welfare declaring the said date a public holiday" indicating that, perhaps again in 2014, the May 1st annual Greek public holiday would be moved to adjoin a weekend as was done earlier this year (2013-04-23) for the May 1st, 2013, annual public holiday in Greece.
