The Government of Armenia, following an extraordinary Saturday meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers this morning, has announced that Monday, July 13, 2015, would be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming Vardavar (Transfiguration) feast, to be compensated by declaring Saturday, July 18, 2015, as a regular working day in Armenia.

As per the aforementioned announcement, the Cabinet will move the upcoming working day of Monday, July 13, 2015, to Saturday, July 18, 2015, in line with the practice (2013-11-19, 2012-12-21 and 2010-12-16), begun a few years ago (2008-06-26), of declaring public holidays for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church (2012-09-07, 2012-07-06, 2012-04-06, 2010-04-01, 2010-07-09, 2010-08-13, and 2010-09-10).

Earlier this year (2015-02-24) when it released the list of official public holidays in Armenia for the calendar year 2015, the government of Armenia had announced that it would no longer declare a non-working public holiday in Armenia for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church.

However, less than 2 months later (2015-04-02), the Armenian government did a u-turn and declared that Monday, April 6, 2015, would be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming "Feast of the Glorious Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ", to be compensated by declaring Saturday, April 11, 2015, as a regular working day.
