The Romanian USR deputy, Marian Lazăr, has introduced a bill into the Romanian Senate which would declare December 24 as a new annual public holiday in Romania.

As per the aforementioned bill, a new indent is inserted ("December 24 - Christmas Eve") in paragraph (1) of Article 139 of Law no. 53/2003, the Romanian Labor Code, as republished in the Official Gazette of Romania, Part I, no. 345 of May 18, 2011.

Recent changes to the list of annual non-working public holidays in Romania, via amendments to article 139 of the Labor Code, include Good Friday (2018-03-12, 2018-02-25), 2018-02-28, 2017-12-11), International Children's Day on June 1st (2016-11-17, 2016-10-18, 2016-09-15, 2016-06-13 and 2016-04-08), and the commemoration of the reunification of Wallachia and Moldavia on January 24 (2016-10-07 and 2016-09-06).

Nonetheless, we do not expect the aforementioned bill, to pass and amend the previously-announced list of Romanian public holidays for 2022 (2021-10-10) and 2023 (2022-01-07).
