The Government of Slovenia has announced its annual official list of Slovenian bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Slovenia for the calendar year 2017, including the recently reinstated January 2 annual non-working public holiday of Slovenia.

After 4 years' lists of Slovenian public holidays (2016-01-10, 2015-01-05, 2013-12-30 and 2013-01-09), when the list of Slovenian bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Slovenia reflected the 2012 austerity package measures in Slovenia which included a reduction in the list of annual Slovenian non-working public holidays (2012-06-01), the aforementioned list of non-working public holidays in Slovenia in 2017 includes the recently-restored January 2 non-working public holiday of Slovenia (2016-12-20 and 2016-12-14).

Finally, as per custom (2016-01-10, 2015-01-05, 2013-12-30, 2013-01-09, 2012-01-04, 2011-01-05 and 2010-01-06), the aforementioned announcement stipulates that public holidays in Slovenia do not follow the "sliding holiday" concept; that is to say, when a fixed-date public holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the following Monday is a normal business day.
