Vatican Annual Public Holidays Amended

Pope Francis has amended the list of official public holidays in the Holy See (the Vatican) by adding an annual non-working public holiday on March 13, the date of his recent election.

The aforementioned declaration of an annual non-working public holiday on March 13, the date of the election of Pope Francis, follows the tradition of having the day of the current Pope's election observed as a public holiday (11-Feb-2013 and 25-Mar-2007).

In addition, another tradition holds that the feast day (nameday) of the current Pope is also to be observed as a public holiday in the Vatican. Pope Francis' civilian name being Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the feast day of Saint George, on April 23, will be an annual non-working public holiday in the Vatican effective immediately.

In 2005, the feast day of the previous Pope, Benedict XVI, born Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger did not need to be declared an annual public holiday, as Saint Joseph's Day is already a permanent public holiday in the Vatican, regardless of who is the current Pope.
