It's definitive; Argentina will not be making three national days, including Malvinas Veteran Day, floating holidays, following the intense controversy which the initiative triggered when it was first announced by the administration of president Mauricio Macri.
This was published in the official gazette, Wednesday edition, indicating that the idea to float those holidays was to lessen the negative impact on production activity and in ensuring the number of school days.
The decree was intended to find a balance in the different public policies, those geared to promote tourism, boosting production and improving education quality.
Under no way did the decree pretend to ignore the symbolic and historic significance of those national days.
Thus the fixed national days, besides the Malvinas Veterans' on April 2, refer to Memory Day, 24 March 1976 when the last military coup in Argentina, and June 20, when the Argentine national Flag was first flown, and will be commemorated in their natural calendar days.
The rest of fixed holidays are January first; Carnival's week Monday and Tuesday; Good Friday; May first; May 25; July 9; December 8 and December 25 Christmas.
