The Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan has announced that Thursday, January 5, 2017, would not be a non-working public holiday throughout Bhutan on the occasion of the upcoming Ngyenpa Guzom (Meeting of the Nine Evils) former Bhutanese non-working public holiday.

The aforementioned declaration that Thursday, January 5, 2017, would not be a non-working public holiday throughout Bhutan on the occasion of the upcoming Meeting of the Nine Evils former public holiday of Bhutan, is in line with the official list of national and regional non-working public holidays in Bhutan for the calendar year 2016, running until the upcoming Bhutanese New Year in February 2017, released at the end of 2015 (2015-10-01) by the Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan.

The Ngyenpa Guzom (Meeting of the Nine Evils), was a public holiday in Bhutan for many years, but it was removed from the official list of public holidays a decade ago (2007-01-03).
