The Association of Banks in Lebanon in conjunction with the Banque du Liban (Lebanon's Central Bank), has issued yet another amended version of the annual list of Lebanese non-working bank holidays in Lebanon for the calendar year 2016, by declaring a compensatory non-working bank holiday in Lebanon in 2016 to compensate the fact that the Annunciation non-working public holiday of Lebanon falls on the date of another non-working public holiday of Lebanon in 2016, namely Western Good Friday.

The aforementioned announcement of Monday, April 4, 2016, as a compensatory non-working bank holiday in Lebanon in 2016 to compensate the fact that the Annunciation non-working public holiday of Lebanon falls on the date of another non-working public holiday of Lebanon in 2016, namely Western Good Friday, thus further modifies the annual list of Lebanese non-working bank holidays in Lebanon for the calendar year 2016, released and later amended early this year (27-Feb-2016 and 07-Jan-2016), based in part on the Government of Lebanon's announced annual list of official Lebanese non-working public holidays in Lebanon for the upcoming calendar year 2016 (29-Nov-2015).

The Feast of the Annunciation was added to the list of annual non-working public holidays in Lebanon six years ago (19-Feb-2010), as announced by Lebanon's then Information Minister, Tarek Mitri, who announced that the Lebanese cabinet had agreed to make the Feast of the Annunciation a new annual national public holiday (la fκte sera chτmιe). That declaration had been expected ever since the year before, following the first, working day, observance of the "Islamic-Christian Day" or as it was officially named, "Together around Mary, Our Lady" (24-Mar-2009).
