December weekend

Before the new year, 25 Dec among Catholics decided to celebrate Christmas. The Orthodox also have a positive attitude towards extra vacation day (because he’s the only one in December) and don’t mind a festive table cover. But at the same time, this initiative did not appear at the state level only in 2017. Most often, Christmas Catholics prepare each other gifts, go to Church and pray. In 2019 the Catholic Christmas fell on Wednesday.

Let’s look a little ahead — the New year in January 2020 fell on Wednesday, so you should plan a “practicing” beforehand. For example, if you work for 16 days instead of 8 hours for 10 (or go 4 weeks on Saturdays), it is possible for the new year to liberate yourself 9 days (from Saturday 27 December to Monday 5 January), and it if has only 1 official day off.

How are the transfers on weekends

If public holidays falls on the usual weekend, they often carry forward on the next working day. For example, if a person standard weekends (Saturday and Sunday) and the holiday fell on a Saturday, then the output will be on Monday. Rarely carry celebration “back”, for example, from Saturday to Friday.

It is worth noting that only the state compensatory time off is subject to extraordinary output, so no need to hope that the employer will let you work in the birthday or other similar occasion. The working hours provided in the employment contract. Only if the document has a “floating rules” which do not provide for strict control of labor time, you can count on time off.

Why so few holidays, which give time off

Many people who like to relax ask the question: “Why are there so many holidays and so little output?” If you miss work for any reason, the work just will not have time, because only one November, there are about 26 holidays. Is the number of reasons some workers use as an excuse to the question “why are you drunk”.

A small conclusion

11 extra days off a year to allow workers to rest a little from the grey everyday routine. Holidays you can afford to be with family, walk with friends, to devote himself to business concerns, or just go to a cafe. Many take summer vacation, and January gives additional opportunities to miss 2-3 working day.

National restructuring makes its own rules and some of the holidays got under reformatting. So the holiday in March, “international women’s day” loses its status, acquiring a new — “women fight for their rights.” A lot of scandals broke out around 9 may.

Holidays and weekends are seriously engaged state, and in 2020, experts predict a new set of changes.
