      Bulgarians to Get 6 Days Off at Easter 2013
      September 19, 2012

      The Council of Ministers is planning to give Bulgarians a six-day long
      break for Easter next year.

      The break will start Wednesday, May 1, which is officially celebrated as
      Labor Day, and will continue Thursday and Friday, which is Holy Friday
      or Great Friday, all the way through Easter Sunday and the Day of St.
      George (Gergiovden), which falls on Monday May 6.

      Employees will make up for Thursday May 2 on Saturday May 11, which will
      be a work day.

      The break will actually be longer than the Christmas one, the Bulgarian
      Standard daily notes, adding the tourist sector is already gearing up
      for it since many Bulgarians will use the days off to travel.

      However, for many sectors these extended holidays create problems and
      increase costs due to paying workers overtime and impeding
      subcontractors or customers.
