Will we still celebrate November 29.?

Ljubljana, 7 November - If the Slovenian Parliament is to pass the Law on Festivities and Holidays this month, then the November 29. will cease to be a national festivity and thus a holiday. The Parliamentary Commission on Interior Politics backed the outline of the Law on Festivities and Holidays that should be passed by the Slovenian Parliament early next week and should be instituted on the next day following the publication in the Government Newsletter. In Slovenia the following festivities would be observed: January 1. and 2. - New Year's Eve, February 8. - PreŇ°eren Memorial Day, a cultural festivity, April 27. - Resistance Memorial Day, May 1. and 2. - Maytag, June 25. - Statehood Day, November 1. - Commemoration Day, December 26. - Independence Day. The festivities are defined as those days that bear statehood, national and cultural attributes. The holidays in the Republic of Slovenia that are not festivities but have religious attributes are: Easter Sunday and Monday, Palm Sunday, August 15. - St. Mary's Day, December 25. - Christmas. The Law surmises that in the event that the holiday befalls on Sunday it can not be extended to the next working day.
