Public Holidays in 2012
Public holidays in Singapore, 2012
Holidays can be planned in advance and it is never too early to start making plans for the next. September 2011 is almost over, and year 2012 will arrive in less than 3 months. It is no doubt that parents would want to maximise their days of leave to spend more time with their little ones by knowing when the next public holiday is. Here’s the listing:
Public Holidays 2012
|New Year's Day||Sunday*, 01 Jan 2012|

Tuesday, 24 Jan 2012
|Good Friday||Friday, 06 Apr 2012|

* The following Monday will be a public holiday.
** The date for Deepavali needs to be checked against the Indian Almanac when it is available.
Here is a list of suggested dates to take the day off from work:
- 30 April, Thursday, eve of Labour Day
- 10 August, Friday, after National Day
- 12 November, Monday, eve of Deepavali
These dates offer the potential of extending the weekends just before the public holidays. Wouldn’t it be so nice to plan a family outing or a short getaway?
