The government of Uruguay has released its annual list of official 2017 Uruguayan bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Uruguay for the calendar year 2017.
As usual (04-Jan-2016, 10-Jan-2015, 06-Jan-2014, 05-Dec-2012 and 15-Dec-2011), and more generally in Latin American countries which follow the Emiliani Rule (02-Oct-2005) to determine the date of observance of some of their non-working public holidays, the interesting aspects are the announced dates of such moveable public holidays, in particular after the decision, a couple of years ago (12-May-2011, 02-May-2011 and 21-Oct-2010), to "freeze" the date of the May 18 public holiday in 2011, something that will not occur in 2017, where the May 18 public holiday of Uruguay will be observed on Monday, May 22, 2017.
Recall that 15 years ago (14-Nov-2001), Uruguay's Parliament had permanently frozen the dates of the observance of the June 19 and November 2 public holidays, leaving only 3 "movable" public holidays in Uruguay: April 19 (Desembarco de los 33 Orientales), May 18 (Batalla de las Piedras), and October 12 (Descubrimiento de América).
