What you have read above in the title surely brought a smile on your face but what follows in this article will not make you happy anymore.
The list of public holidays for 2020 is now official after today’s session of the Cabinet meeting.
|New Year||1st January||Wednesday|
|New Year||2nd January||Thursday|
|Chinese Spring Festival||25th January||Saturday|
|Abolition of Slavery||1st February||Saturday|
|Thaipoosam Cavadee||8th February||Saturday|
|Maha Shivratree||21st February||Friday|
|Independence and Republic Day||12nd March||Thursday|
|Labour Day||1st May||Friday|

(Depends on moon visibility)
|Assumption of the blessed Virgin Mary||15th August||Saturday|
|Ganesh Chaturti||23rd August||Sunday|
|Arrival of Indentured Labourers||2nd November||Monday|
The above list is scary, isn’t it? Things might be different if you are an employer, a manager or a workaholic though!
7 out of the 15 public holidays fall on either a Saturday or a Sunday!
Nearly half of the list!
This did not happen since quite some years as I don’t remember having written a similar post while feeling so deeply sorry for all those days nearly lost for most workers.
Anyway, there’s absolutely nothing you can do!
