Macedonia's Ministry of Labour and Social Policy has released its annual list of official non-working public holidays in Macedonia and Macedonian bank holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2019 ("Programa na nerabotni denovi za 2019 godina").
As usual (2017-10-21, 2016-10-22, 2015-10-27, 2015-01-05, 2014-01-11, 2013-01-01, 2012-12-03, 2011-11-03, 2010-10-22 and 2009-10-26), the aforementioned announcement, of the list of official non-working public holidays in Macedonia and Macedonian bank holidays for the calendar year 2019, follows the 2007 Bill on Amending the Law on State Holidays (2007-02-08), always with the possible addition of last-minute public holidays, most commonly the frequent tree planting public holidays (2013-11-28, 2013-11-23, 2012-11-15, 2011-03-28, 2010-11-17, 2010-03-28, 2009-11-12, 2008-11-18, and 2008-03-12), though this seems to have been abandoned in recent years.
Contrary to what was the case in some years (2016-10-22 and 2015-01-05), a second day of public holiday in Macedonia has not been added for the Ramazan Bajram (End of Ramadan) non-working public holiday of Macedonia in 2019.
In addition to the 11 general public holidays listed in the aforementioned announcement, there are sectorial holidays that may be taken by: citizens of Orthodox religion, Catholic religion, Muslim religion, the Albanian community, the Serb community, the Roma community, the Vlach community, the Jewish community, the Bosniak community, and the Turkish community.
