The Royal Civil Service Commission of the Government of Bhutan has released its annual official list of national and regional non-working public holidays in Bhutan for the upcoming calendar year 2019, and for 2020 until the Losar Lunar New Year public holiday of Bhutan, comprising the entire Year of the Earth Female Pig.
The announced list of 2019-2020 public holidays in Bhutan confirms, again (05-Nov-2017, 28-Oct-2016, 01-Oct-2015, 24-Oct-2014, 15-Nov-2013, 12-Oct-2012, 04-Jan-2012, 05-Nov-2010 and 13-Jan-2010), the re-instatement of the Thrue Bab (Blessed Rainy Day) national public holiday (16-Sep-2009) that had been canceled a decade ago (03-Jan-2007).
The aforementioned list of 2019-2020 public holidays in Bhutan also confirms the recent move of the March 20 Gross National Happiness non-working public holiday throughout Bhutan in observance of the United Nations' International Day of Happiness, from it original date of March 20, but once again does not even mention it on November 11, the date of the Anniversary of the 4th Druk Gyalpo (30-Jan-2014, 15-Mar-2013 and 06-Jul-2012), to which it was to be adjoined.
In addition, we can always expect the last minute declaration of a public holiday to mark the first snowfall of the year (20-Jan-2016, 05-Mar-2014 and 20-Jan-2013), although the idea of a public holiday for the anniversary of the First Gyatsey seems abandoned (06-Feb-2016).
