Background Information

Fixed date public holidays in Argentina fall into 2 categories. Feriados inamovibles (those that do not move; the majority) which are covered by law 21.329, except for Immaculate Conception which is governed by law 24.445. Feriados trasladables (those that do move depending on the day of the week when they occur) which are covered by laws 23.555 and 24.445.  Malvinas Day: Perhaps because of its highly emotional affect, this public holiday has been tinkered with repeatedly by the Argentine legislature. It was originally decreed for April 2 by the de facto Law 22769. Then, Decree 901 of March 23, 1984, transferred it to June 10. It was then moved back to April 2, subject to changes depending on the weekday upon which it occurred. Then, finally, Law 25.370 was amended in June 2006, to make Malvinas Day (officially called "Día del veterano y los caídos en la Guerra de Malvinas") one of the non-moveable public holidays, regardless of the weekday on which it occurs .  Flag Day and General San Martín Holiday: A bill was introduced in 1996 to make these 2 public holidays remain on their respective dates (June 20 and August 17), but it never came into law.  Carnival Monday and Tuesday were declared public holidays by the decree 2.446 of 1956. Subsequent military governments increasingly tried to restrain its observance until 1976, when the last military junta passed law 21.329 which prohibits the celebration of Carnival. The 2 days of Carnival were retored as nationwide public holidays by the "Decreto 1584/2010 - Establécense Feriados Nacionales y días no laborables"<
