Public Holidays 2020 for Mauritius

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.

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!

Bon weekend!
