The Government of Armenia has announced that, at the next cabinet meeting, tomorrow, amendments to the law on holidays and memorable days will be discussed, with a view to reduce the number of non-working public holidays in Armenia around the New Year and Armenian Christmas annual public holidays or Armenia.
Today's announcement, were it to come to pass, would not affect the dates of the official public holidays in Armenia for the beginning of the calendar year 2018, as announced by the Government of Armenia, last month (21-Nov-2017), as the decision, if approved by parliament, would only come into force on June 1, 2018.
In fact, based on the few specifics given in the government announcement ("the government proposes to consider January 3, 4 and 5 non-business days"), it is difficult to see any departure from the changes made to Armenian public holidays, almost a decade ago, when the government of Armenia amended the "Law on Armenian Holidays and Memory Days", by adding 7 non-working public holidays, around the time of Christmas (05-Dec-2009), unless, the government of Armenia intends to cancel the Armenian Christmas annual public holiday of Armenia, a most unlikely possibility in our opinion.
