Public Holidays 2018

Malta Expats | Public Holidays 2018
Maltese people and everyone living here, including us Expats – take a peak of the Public Holidays 2018. What we could see this year is the increased number of public holidays! Yes, there are additional holidays added to the calendar of Public Holidays in 2018. Last year there were fourteen and most of them were weekends.This year we are counting sixteen holidays in total where unfortunately four of them are falling on weekends.There were some public discussions back in 2017 to use the same “shifting” principle and extend the holiday weekends, decision on which is yet to be announced. We guess the Workers Union couldn’t influence change of the New Year’s Day but nevertheless, #hellofajob once again to the Workers Union and we like it big time!
