Nepal's Ministry of Home Affairs via its spokesperson, Pradip Koirala, has announced that the cabinet of the government of Nepal had declared Thursday, December 29, 2021, as a public holiday "on the occasion of the Tamu Lhosar Festival".

The aforementioned declaration of Thursday, December 29, 2021, as a public holiday in Nepal, represents another slight departure (2021-12-24 and 2021-12-18) from the gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2078 (April 2021-April 2022), in which the Tamu Lhosar Festival public holiday was nationwide, but limited to the Tamu ethnic group (2021-04-02).

Earlier this week, the Gandaki provincial government of Nepal had already declared a provincial public holiday on Thursday, December 30, 2021, for Tamu Lhosar, as one of the 6 annual provincial public holidays that federal regulations afford to provincial administrations.
