    Is it true they approved 21 days official holidays for Kosovo? Compare UK 8 days, USA 10 days, Ger 15 days, Poland 11, Switz 8+6, Italy 11, Austria 14, Albania 8, Serbia 8…

    With the Ashkali day being 15 Feb 2 days before Independence on 17 Feb, you can expect an unofficial imbetween day being taken of 16 Feb.

    So that will be 22 days or nearly 2 days every month! Every other week will be a 4 day week.

    Does anyone intend to do any work here and lift the economy out of the doldrums or is the Government just thinking of itself by voting itself yet more holidays for the taxpayers to pay for.

    So the government will do 4 day weeks most of the time (not much difference there then..). Unfortuately this covers the private sector too.
    Under the law employers must grant 18 days leave PLUS national holidays that’s 39 days leave or nearly 4 days a month.

    Many other countries cope with multi-ethnicity and several religions without giving everyone each others’ religious or ethnic holidays or creating days for every ethnic group.

    For example there is a large Hindu, Muslim and Jewish population in UK and US. They have an entitlement to take their major holidays (the employer can not refuse) but they count towards their leave days.

    Bosnia has a good solution – everyone gets 2 days religious days to take as leave.

    So the majority wanted 28 November off – to solve that by giving every ethnic group a day is a bit silly. If you want to do that though then you have to cut back on the religious holidays.

    Oh well. I go back to filling out my Kosovo tax form.

    Sorry I wrote this in English by the way.

    This is stupid. This means the government, banks, police, municipalities etc. are all closed regardless of what ethnic groups holiday it is.

    If Kosovo nation wants a new identity this is not the way to do it.

    I understand they did this as an easy way to close the issue, but it is very bad in the long run and they will see it. But how are they going to take away one ethnic groups holiday? It will immediately be considered a discriminatory act. And they will never be able to put enough votes together to remove all ethnic holidays. One again, this was stupid.

    There should be ONE and only ONE – KOSOVAR DAY.
