The Armenian Government has announced that it had declared Monday, July 28, 2014, as a non-working public holiday in Armenia on account of the upcoming Vardavar (Transfiguration) feast.
As was done for the past 5 years (2012-07-06, 2011-07-29, 2010-07-09 and 2009-07-16), the aforementioned non-working public holiday of Monday, July 28, 2014, will be compensated by Saturday, August 2, 2014, being declared a regular working day.
Six years ago (2008-06-26), the Armenian Government began the practice of systematically declaring public holidays for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church (2013-11-19, 2012-12-21, 2010-12-16).
Then, after a couple of years of one-off declarations, the Armenian Government decided to declare all 4 "Commemoration Days" ahead of time when it announced the official list of 2011 non working public holidays in Armenia (2010-12-16).
However, apart from the declaration of a non-working public holiday for Easter Monday (2012-04-06), no similar announcement for the remainder of the year had been made concerning the 2012 "Commemoration Days of All the Departed".
