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 (21-Oct-2017, 22-Oct-2016, 27-Oct-2015, 05-Jan-2015, 11-Jan-2014, 01-Jan-2013, 03-Dec-2012, 03-Nov-2011, 22-Oct-2010 and 26-Oct-2009), 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 (08-Feb-2007), always with the possible addition of last-minute public holidays, most commonly the frequent tree planting public holidays (28-Nov-2013, 23-Nov-2013, 15-Nov-2012, 28-Mar-2011, 17-Nov-2010, 28-Mar-2010, 12-Nov-2009, 18-Nov-2008, and 12-Mar-2008), though this seems to have been abandoned in recent years.
Contrary to what was the case in some years (22-Oct-2016 and 05-Jan-2015), 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.
