Official holidays in May in Russia

The calendar

Official holidays in May 2019:

  • World Labor Day - May 1;
  • Victory Day - May 9th.

Weekends: May 1-5, inclusive, and May 9-12

Let's take a closer look at the weekend calendar:

  • May 1 is World Labor Day. In 2019 falls on Wednesday, officially considered a holiday. It is followed by 2 and 3 May - also a weekend - due to the transfer of the New Year holidays (moved on 5 and 6 January). And that is not all! Two more days are added to them - on May 4 and 5, because it is Saturday and Sunday.
  • May 9, according to the calendar, falls on Thursday, so the weekend will be 9, 10, 11, 12.May 8 will be a shortened day, and 13 - the beginning of the working week.
  • In May 2019, workers will rest for 9 days.

It can be concluded that people will rest in the following days:

  • May 1-5 inclusive.
  • May 9-12 inclusive.

The advantage of such a calendar is that the working rhythm is not lost, because the total number of working days in May is 18, not workers - 13. This includes 2 holidays.

Usually people on May 1 go to the country house or to a country house. There they prepare sites for planting vegetables, repair summer cottages, decorate the territory, so it is important to know what the days off will be in May 2019.

In 2019, there is a calendar in which all weekends, which were officially postponed due to holidays, are marked. It was based on the decision of the government of the Russian Federation, which adopted a resolution on the postponement of holidays.

Often in this calendar is noted:

  • Red - where there is a transfer and / or a mix of days off, as well as holidays, which will help the residents of Russia to have a qualitative rest.
  • Any other color or by marking an asterisk indicates short working days that precede the holidays.
