Weekend in February 2019
Every year presents us with its nuances regarding non-working days. It so happens that the official weekend coincides with public holidays. In this case, they are transferred to other dates. Interestingly, weekends in February 2019 include additional rest days?
What do official documents say
To answer the question of how we relax in February, it is better to look at the document that regulates everything in Russia that is related to the production process. This is the so-called production calendar. It is used by business leaders of various forms of ownership, personnel officers and accountants. Every year this document is carefully studied and approved by the Government of the Russian Federation. The Ministry of Labor selects the most optimal work schedules of enterprises and organizations, taking into account the characteristics of each year, since the days of the week of weekends and holidays, for natural reasons, change every year. The government department is carefully studying the calendar and offers its own version of weekends and holidays.When a holiday and a weekend share one day, the weekend is shifted in favor of combining non-working days.
The production calendar for February 2019 has already been approved, and we can tell you with confidence about the official weekend, holiday calendar and working hours.
So, what we see:
From the production calendar it is clear that in February there will be only one official holiday - February 23 - the Day of Defender of the Fatherland. This date falls on Saturday in 2019. She is legally a day off. The Ministry of Labor decided to move the Saturday to a more convenient, from their point of view, day - May 10. Thus, in the spring the Russians will have a long official weekend. The weekend calendar in February is as follows:
- Saturdays: 02/02/19, 02/09/19, 02/16/19, 02/23/19;
- Sundays: 02/03/19/10/02, 17/02/19, 02/24/19.
Defender of the Fatherland Day
This holiday is known in our country since Soviet times. True, then he had a different name, but his essence remained the same. On this day, all citizens of our country honor those who are on the defense of our peaceful sky. It is clear that not only the representatives of the stronger sex are involved in this.However, according to the tradition prevailing in the USSR, congratulations are received mainly by men. Indeed, since ancient times they defended the borders of our state. Today, this holiday is not such an ideological coloring, as in the old days. At present, women simply congratulate men for their strength, courage and endurance and give them gifts as potential defenders of our country.
