Working days in 2021
The fourth quarter of 2020 has begun, the New Year is not far off, but already now we can already find out which days we will spend at work and which not.
First of all, you need to clarify that the following are considered non-working holidays:
January 1-6 and 8 - New Year's holidays;
January 7 - Orthodox Christmas;
February 23 - Defender of the Fatherland Day;
March 8 - International Women's Day;
May 1 - Spring and Labor Day;
May 9 - Victory Day;
June 12 - Day of Russia;
November 4 - National Unity Day.
Thus, in the first quarter, the period from January 1 to January 10 (New Year and New Year's holiday) is traditionally announced, also in honor of the Defender of the Fatherland Day, we do not work from February 21 to February 23, while Saturday February 20 is considered a working day - the day off is postponed to Monday , February 22. In March, it is somewhat more modest - only Monday, March 8, International Women's Day, was declared non-working.
As for the II quarter, Mondays on May 3 and 10 (in honor of Labor Day and Victory Day) and June 14 (Russia Day) are declared days off.
III quarter - fully working, no additional holidays are provided.
Two days off were postponed to the IV quarter from I - to November 5 (after November 4 - National Unity Day) and to December 31 from January 2 and 3 (Saturday and Sunday). Therefore, in November 2021 we have a rest on the 4,5,6 and 7th, and the New Year's holidays in 2022 begin a day earlier!
In total, in 2021, Russians will work 249 days, that is, 5 days less than the French, who will work 254 days.
