The Serbian government has confirmed that the upcoming Julian calendar (Orthodox) New Year on Monday, January 14, 2013, would be an official non-working public holiday in Serbia.

Late last month (2012-12-30), the Serbian government had announced that, at the request of the Serbian Orthodox Church, it had declared that the upcoming Julian calendar (Orthodox) New Year on Monday, January 14, 2013, would be an official non-working public holiday in Serbia.

However, either from today's or last month's announcement, it is not clear whether this declaration of Monday, January 14, 2013, as a non-working public holiday in Serbia is one-off or is a further amendment (2011-12-05) to the "Law on State Holidays" of Serbia.
