holidays in 2010
And in our holiday-obsessed nation it is spreading like wildfire.
But the fact is that most of the date-day combinations do not hold true in the calendar for 2010.
Here's the official version [PDF] of the holidays in 2010.
Republic Day - January 26, Tuesday
Holi - March 1, Monday
May Day - May 1, Saturday
Independence Day - August 15, Sunday
Mahatma Gandhi's Birthday - October 2, Saturday
Dussehra - October 17, Sunday
Diwali - November 5, Friday
Christmas - December 25, Saturday
So relax, most of the holidays (for those with a six-day week) are still safe. And just don't frantically forward any SMS that comes you way.
Damn, for a moment I too was scared. Whew!
