The Government of Armenia has announced that Monday, September 12, 2016, would once again be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming Exaltation of the Holy Cross feast, to be compensated by declaring Saturday, September 17, 2016, as a regular working day in Armenia.

As per the aforementioned announcement, the Cabinet will move the upcoming working day of Monday, September 12, 2016, to Saturday, September 17, 2016, in line with the practice (24-Feb-2015, 19-Nov-2013, 21-Dec-2012 and 16-Dec-2010), begun a few years ago (26-Jun-2008), of declaring public holidays for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church (17-Mar-2016, 10-Sep-2015, 11-Jul-2015, 02-Apr-2015, 07-Sep-2012, 06-Jul-2012, 06-Apr-2012, 01-Apr-2010, 09-Jul-2010, 13-Aug-2010, and 10-Sep-2010).

Last year (24-Feb-2015) 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 (02-Apr-2015), 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". This was repeated a few months later (11-Jul-2015), when the Government of Armenia announced that Monday, July 13, 2015, would be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming Vardavar (Transfiguration) feast.

In 2016, the patter of a lst-minute declaration of declaring public holidays for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church was partially continued (17-Mar-2016).
