Official Holidays

For the most important holidays New Year's, Christmas , and the May holidays many shops close down completely and city streets become strangely quiet. All government offices are closed on public holidays, and most overseas embassies are too.

If the holiday falls on a Monday or a Friday, then everything is simple it's a day off. If it falls on a weekend, then the Friday or Monday will also be a day off.

If it falls on a Tuesday or a Thursday then the weekend will be shifted a day in the right direction and the Saturday or Sunday becomes a working day, with the three days off being Sunday-Monday-Tuesday or Thursday-Friday-Saturday.

If the holiday falls on a Wednesday then there is no long weekend.
