The Government of Moldova has gazetted the "Moldovan Government Decision Nr. 867 of December 18, 2015", signed by the Interim Prime Minister of Moldova, Gheorghe Brega, thus officializing, in the "Official Gazette no. 347-360 of December 25, 2015", the expanded and later amended list of one-off 2016 non-working public holiday in Moldova and annual non-working public holidays in Moldova, for the upcoming calendar year 2016.

Early last autumn (2015-10-26), government of Moldova had announced an extension to the list of 2016 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2016"), by declaring a one-off non-working public holiday in Moldova for 2016, to be observed on Monday, March 7, 2016, and to be compensated by the declaration of Saturday, March 5, 2016, as a regular working day.

A couple of months later (2015-12-16), the government of Moldova then amended that previously-released list of 2016 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2016" and the later "Cu privire la transferul zilei de odihna în anul 2016"), by changing the compensation day for the one-off 2016 non-working public holiday in Moldova added to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the upcoming calendar year 2016, from Saturday, March 5, 2016, to Saturday, March 12, 2016.

The year before (2014-11-16), the government of Moldova had also announced an extension of 3 bridge non-working public holidays in Moldova in 2015, well in advance of the beginning of 2015, to be compensated by a nearby Saturday being declared a regular working day in Moldova, and did not tinker any further with that list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the calendar year 2015.

Before that, the initial list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the coming years did not include any bridge public holidays, and those bridge public holidays in Moldova were usually announced later, on a case-by-case basis (2013-12-07, 2013-02-08, 2012-04-11, 2012-02-22, 2011-02-18, 2010-08-10, 2009-12-04 and 2008-12-10).
