Last night, Poland's Sejm (lower house), passed by a vote of 233 votes for, 105 against and 77 abstentions, a bill that declares Monday, November 12, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Poland to mark the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence on November 11, 1918.
The last new Polish non-working public holiday was Epiphany which was restored as a non-working public holiday in Poland 8 years ago (2010-09-24). Until then, Epiphany had been the only religious public holiday not been restored since Poland regained its independence in 1991, and had been the source of many petitions to have the public holiday restored (2009-04-19, 2008-06-27, 2008-09-22, and 2008-10-17).
