It seems the Ukrainian government decreed that today, being a Saturday, was a working day.
And it turned out to be true! Mr Moi went to work, we even went to the bank and it was OPEN on a Saturday!
Why did the government issue a decree that Saturday was just another working day?
Next week, there are two public holidays – on Tuesday and Wednesday. When public holidays fall on days that are separated by only one working day from the weekend, the Government will usually make everyone work on a Saturday anywhere up to two weeks prior.
This, then, creates a four (or, in this case, five) day weekend.
Of course, this doesn’t really affect lazy me. But I always thought weekends were sacred… Am very glad I don’t work in this slave driving country (with lots of long weekend holidays).
