The Government of Armenia has announced that, contrary to past years, Monday, April 22, 2019, would not be a non-working public holiday in Armenia, on account of the upcoming "Day after the Holy Resurrection of Christ" (Merelotz).

Recall that, when it released the list of official public holidays in Armenia for the calendar year 2015 (2015-02-24), the government of Armenia had announced that it would no longer declare a non-working public holiday in Armenia for each of the Merelots ("Commemoration Days of All the Departed") feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church, ending the practice (2013-11-19, 2012-12-21 and 2010-12-16), begun a few years ago (2008-06-26), of declaring public holidays for each of the "Commemoration Days of All the Departed" feasts of the lord of Armenian Apostolic Church (2012-09-07, 2012-07-06, 2012-04-06, 2010-04-01, 2010-07-09, 2010-08-13, and 2010-09-10), though this resolution did not last long, with each of the remaining Merelots of the year being declared a public holiday in Armenia, one-by-one (2018-03-05, 2017-08-16, 2017-04-04, 2016-09-03, 2015-04-02, 2015-07-11, and 2015-09-10).
