The government of Albania has announced its annual list of the official Albanian bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Albania for the calendar year 2020.

The list of the official Albanian bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Albania for the calendar year 2020, mentions that "The holiday dates of Kurban Bajram and Eid al-Fitr may change according to the lunar calendar. If there are any changes, you will be notified of a second notification.", but the Muslim dates in Albania are usually based on the Turkish DIB Islamic calendar and rarely change.

The list of 2020 public holidays in Albania also includes, belatedly, the mention of the one-off Albanian public holiday, on January 3, 2020, as wit was declared by the Albanian Council of Ministers, last month (2019-12-25).

Finally, the aforementioned list of the official Albanian bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Albania for the calendar year 2020, as was the case for the past 4 years (2018-10-29, 2017-12-18, 2017-01-07 and 2016-01-09), mentions that "In cases when official holidays fall on weekdays (Saturday or Sunday), Monday is a day of rest" ("Në rastet kur festat zyrtare bie në ditët e pushimit javor (e shtunë ose e diel), dita e hënë është ditë pushimi."), as was the case for the 5 years before (2013-10-04, 2012-11-05, 2011-10-20 and 2010-11-01).
