This government worker has been told only Monday the 13th off, not the Sunday. Although, of course, that's not 'official' yet.

So it will be the usual case of not knowing for certain until a few days before.

excellent!

I love it how they swap holidays around to make sure we get three day weekends.

I used to get very anxious about the uncertainty, but I now just make my plans and go with the flow.

Even when I did miscalculate, things were inshallahed away and I didn't lose any annual leave.
