The Julian calendar is used to celebrate religious festivals (but here the Gregoriandate of Christmas is written).

When a public holiday occurs on a weekend (for example, Saturday or Sunday), the next working day (for example, Monday) becomes an official day off as well.

If there are just one or two working days between a public holiday and another day off, the Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers typically issues a proposal to eliminate this gap by relocating these working days to a certain Saturday (that is to have uninterrupted vacations, but to compensate this by work on another day which would be a day off). Typically, such suggestions only apply to workers who have Saturday and Sunday off each week.
