Public Holidays

The Sri Lankan calendar for 2011 has 27 public holidays.It became 28 when 15th of April too was declared a public holiday.Banks have two additional special holidays. Most countries have only around five public holidays per year.In a majority it is less than ten.Probably Sri Lanka is the country having the biggest number of public holidays.
Poya holidays add a burden to our list of public holidays.This should be reviewed without being emotional .In Thailand and Myanmar which are predominantly Buddhist not all full moon days are holidays.It is known fact that in Sri Lanka majority of Buddhists do not use the Poya hloiday for spiritual activities.
