May holidays in 2018
Our people love this spring month, as the really warm days come and you can finally relax with the whole family in nature. I wonder what will be the weekend for the May holidays in 2018?
Getting acquainted with the calendar of 2018, you can see that the holidays: the first and the ninth of May fall in the middle of the week:
- 05/01/18 is Tuesday;
- 05/09/18 - Wednesday.
In this situation, you can hardly count on a long weekend in May. So far it is known that the Ministry of Labor has proposed to postpone the weekend of January 7, 18 - Sunday to 05/02/18, and make the weekend Saturday of April 28, 188 work so that April 30, 1998 - Monday, make holidays. Thus, the following picture may turn out:
- 04/29/18 - Sunday - day off:
- 04/30/18 - Monday - day off;
- 05/01/18 - official holiday;
- 05/02/18 - day off due to the transfer of Sunday 07/01/18.
That is, there may be four continuous weekends. In addition, there will be another official holiday - May 9th. There are no options here - we rest for one day, moreover, 05/08/18, as it should be, will be reduced by one hour.
Of course, this is not 7-8 continuous weekends, as it once was, but still not bad. If this is officially approved by the Government of the Russian Federation, we get:
|Number of calendar days:||31|
|Number of working days:||20|
Thus, the Russians in May of 2018 will rest for a third of a month, which is very good, considering that there will be wonderful weather outside.
