The Government of Slovenia has announced its annual official list of Slovenian bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Slovenia for the calendar year 2020.

As per custom (2018-12-02, 2017-11-11, 2016-12-29, 2016-01-10, 2015-01-05, 2013-12-30, 2013-01-09, 2012-01-04, 2011-01-05 and 2010-01-06), the aforementioned announcement stipulates that public holidays in Slovenia do not follow the "sliding holiday" concept; that is to say, when a fixed-date public holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, the following Monday is a normal business day and, in addition, that "National holidays in the Republic of Slovenia are work-free days, except Primož Trubar Day, Day of Slovenes in Prekmurje Incorporated into the Mother Nation, Day of Restoration of the Primorska Region to the Motherland, Slovenian Sports Day, Sovereignty Day and Rudolf Maister Day, which are not work-free days.".

The aforementioned list of non-working public holidays in Slovenia in 2020 includes the restored January 2 non-working public holiday of Slovenia (2016-12-20 and 2016-12-14), which had been absent from the list of official public holidays in Slovenia for 4 years (2016-01-10, 2015-01-05, 2013-12-30 and 2013-01-09), following the 2012 austerity package measures in Slovenia which included a reduction in the list of annual Slovenian non-working public holidays (2012-06-01).
