Unification Day becomes legal day off in Romania

The Chamber of Deputies passed a bill that makes January 24, the day when Romania celebrates the Union of the Romanian Principalities, a legal day off.

The legislative proposal passed with 209 votes in favor, four against, and two abstentions. Next, the bill will go to President Klaus Iohannis for promulgation.

January 24 is thus added to the list of other public holidays in Romania, namely January 1 and January 2, the first and second day of Orthodox Easter, May 1, the first and second day of the Pentecost, the Assumption of Mary (August 15), Saint Andrew (November 30), Romania's National Day (December 1), and the first and second day of Christmas.

The Labor Code also provides two days off for each of the three annual religious holidays, declared as such by legal religious denominations, other than Christian, for persons belonging to them.
