Public Holiday

Monday, 22. March 2010

To me as a German this is a new experience.

If in Germany a public holiday falls on a Sunday – bad luck.

Not so here in South Africa (as in a number of other countries as well). March 21st is Human Rights Day, a public holiday. This was yesterday, and yesterday was Sunday. Luckily the Public Holiday Act (Act No 36 of  1994) dertermines whenever a public holiday falls on  a Sunday, the Monday following on it shall be a public holiday.
