Russians to Have Long Winter Holidays Again

Like in previous years, forthcoming New Year and Christmas holidays in Russia will last ten days: from December 30 to January 8. The winter holidays itself take 8 days (January 1-8), but it is added by Sunday, December 30, and Monday, December 31. Saturday, December 29, will be a workday.

      According to different opinion polls, 10-40 percent of Russians support the shortening of such a long holiday week. In April 2012, Russian Government shortened winter holidays from 10 to 8 days. The two vacated days will be added to other holidays, such as May 1 (the Labour Day) of May 9 (the Victory Day). The officials promised to announce these days later.

      Besides, the Public Unity Day (November 4) will be celebrating this year in November 3-5, as the the day-off will be moved from Sunday, November 4, to Monday, November 5.
