Poland's Sejm (lower house), has passed a bill instating a new state holiday, the National Day of Remembrance for Unswerving Clergymen, in relation to the anniversary of the abduction of the priest Jerzy Popiełuszko, on October 19, 1984.

The last new Polish annual non-working public holiday was Epiphany which was restored as a non-working public holiday in Poland 8 years ago (2010-09-24, 2009-04-19, 2008-06-27, 2008-09-22, and 2008-10-17).

A one-off public holiday was also declared in Poland last year (2018-10-24), on Monday, November 12, 2018, to mark the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence on November 11, 1918.
