Holidays in December 2018

The first month of winter has always been considered intense. By the end of the year, it is necessary to complete all previously initiated cases and take stock of the past period. At the end, we are waiting for the New Year. Both adults and children are looking forward to it, so already now many of our citizens are interested in when there will be holidays in December 2018.


How to rest in December 2018

To reliably find out this information, it is best to look at the December 2018 production calendar. It has the force of law, and every year is adjusted by the Government of the Russian Federation. In the production calendar, in addition to this information, you can find out everything about working days, since it contains the norms of working time at various lengths of the working week.

Holidays in December 2018

So, according to this document:

Number of calendar days: 31
Working days: 21
Short days: 1
Holidays and weekends: 10
Weekend Shifts: 1
Number of slave hour. at 40 o'clock slave week: 167
Same at 36 o'clock slave week: 150,2
Same at 24 o'clock slave week: 99,8

Weekends will be:

  • Saturday: 01.12.18, 08.12.18, 15.12.18, 22.12.18;
  • Sunday: 02.12.18, 09.12.18, 16.12.18, 23.12.18, 30.12.18.
  • Monday: 31.12.18 - his Government of the Russian Federation made weekends due to the weekend's transfer - Saturday, December 29, 188 (Article 95 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation). This is done in order not to break the holidays and weekends one working day.

Thus, the New Year holidays begin already 12/30/18. At the same time, Saturday, December 29, 188 was made a shorter working day.

As a result, the Russians, even before the official holiday of January 1, already have two consecutive days off: December 30, 18 and December 31, 188.

This is very convenient for those who plan to celebrate the New Year away from home. There will be time and on the road, and to prepare for the holiday.

The same can be said about hostesses, who constantly lack time to thoroughly prepare for the holidays. Now women will not only be able to purchase the necessary products on time, clean the house, but also slowly prepare all the planned dishes. They even have time to tidy themselves up. So, the representatives of the beautiful half will look on the eve of 2019 simply irresistible.
