Sri Lanka's Minister of Home Affairs, Wajira Abewardena, has published in the "Gazette of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka" (No. 2077/32), the official list of annual Sri Lankan public holidays for the upcoming calendar year 2019.

As usual, the aforementioned announcement ("By virtue of the powers vested in me by Section 4 of the Holidays Act, No. 29 of 1971, I, Wajira Abewardena, Minister of Home Affairs, do by this order determine that for the purpose of this Act, the days specified in the Schedule hereto shall be the Public and Bank Holidays for the year 2019") does not list any bank holidays, as these are usually declared separately from public holidays and full Moon Poya days (07-Sep-2017, 24-Jul-2017, 01-Apr-2017, 19-Oct-2016, 22-May-2016, 29-May-2015, 14-Nov-2014, 18-Oct-2013, 07-Apr-2014, 05-Jul-2013, 11-Jun-2012, 16-Oct-2012, 10-Oct-2011, 31-Aug-2011, 21-Jul-2010, 12-Jul-2010 and 06-Jul-2009).

Today's Gazette publication confirms all of the dates listed in the recently-released list of Sri Lankan Poya Days in 2019 (14-May-2018), which did not contain any oddities such as were present in the list of 2018 Poya Days (25-Jul-2017 and 01-Apr-2017) which listed the Vesay Full Moon Poya day in April, rather than in May (27-Mar-2016, 16-Mar-2015, 07-Apr-2014, 12-Apr-2013).
