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 2018, including the reinstated, January 2, annual non-working public holiday of Slovenia.

For the second year (2016-12-29), the aforementioned list of non-working public holidays in Slovenia in 2018 includes the restored January 2 non-working public holiday of Slovenia (2016-12-20 and 2016-12-14), that had been absent from the list of official public holidays in Slovenia for 4 years (2016-01-10, 2015-01-05, 2013-12-30 and 2013-01-09), following the 2012 austerity package measures in Slovenia which included a reduction in the list of annual Slovenian non-working public holidays (2012-06-01).

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.
