The leaders of the coalition government groups, Andreas Dressel (SPD) and Anjes Tjarks (Greens), of Germany's Hamburg State have announced that a vote on a new annual public holiday will occur in the spring and would take effect in 2018.

Recall that, last autumn (30-Sep-2017), we had reported that the CDU Group of Germany's Hamburg State had submitted a motion to the Bürgerschaftskanzlei to have Reformation Day of October 31st, declared a new annual public holiday in Germany's Hamburg State, a continuation of what happened 6 years ago (13-Dec-2012), when the then Mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz, had announced that October 31, 2017, would be a one-off non-working public holiday throughout Hamburg, the first German State to do so (08-Oct-2015, 16-Sep-2014, 12-Dec-2013, 13-Aug-2013, 04-Jun-2013, 17-May-2013, 15-May-2013, 01-May-2013, 14-Mar-2013, 08-Mar-2013, 25-Jan-2013, 10-Jan-2013).

Neighboring States are also considering an extension to their official list of annual public holidays.

Early last year year (25-Jan-2017), the Minister of Economics (Ministerpräsident) of Germany's state of Schleswig-Holstein, Reinhard Meyer, announced that he was in favour of adding Reformation Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein, followed by the German State of Bremen which has also been moving towards the declaration of October 31st as a new annual non-working public holiday in the German State of Bremen (27-Mar-2017 and 18-Feb-2017), as well as Lower Saxony whose Prime Minister, Stephan Weil (SPD), announced that he would support the declaration of Reformation Day as an annual non-working public holiday in the German State of Lower Saxony, if he won the October 15, regional election (23-Sep-2017).
