The government of Nepal has announced that Sunday, August 17, 2014, had been declared as a non-working public holiday throughout Nepal on account of the upcoming annual Shree Krishna Janmastami festival.

The aforementioned announcement that Sunday, August 17, 2014, had been declared as a non-working public holiday throughout Nepal on account of the upcoming annual Shree Krishna Janmastami festival, is in line with last spring's (2014-03-02) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2071 (mid-April 2014 to mid-April 2015).

Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (2001-01-13), Nepal now observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays.
