Malawians to observe Christmas on December 27

74

Malawi government through the Ministry of Local Development has said that this year’s Christmas holiday will be observed on Tuesday, 27th December even though Christmas Day will be on Sunday.

In a statement signed by principal secretary for Ministry of Local Development Stuart Ligomeka, this is the case because Christmas Day falls on Sunday and Boxing Day falls on Monday.

The ministry said it has used Section 4 of the public Holidays Act. Cap. 18.5 of the laws of Malawi which provides that: where in any year, a day specified in the schedule, other than the Saturday following Good Friday, falls on a Saturday or Sunday.

Christmas holiday on 27th December.

Then the next succeeding day, not being itself a Sunday or public holiday shall in such be a public holiday in all respects as if it were a day specified in the schedule shall in such year, cease to be a holiday.

“In this case Christmas Day which falls on Sunday is expected to be observed on Tuesday the 27 December and Boxing Day which falls on Monday 26 December 2016 will be observed accordingly,” reads the statement.

Christmas is an annual event whereby the Christian community worldwide celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ.
