As if we don't have enough holidays already. This is why we are still 25 years behind most of the other developing 3rd world countries.

Well, SL is simply unbeatable when it comes to number of holidays. We are the world champions! By the way, Govt should remove all poya holidays except for Wesak & Poson. All religious holidays should be limited to 2 each.

SL do not have that much holidays like people said,other countries you have a month paid leave once you complete one year of work.That leave they travel other countries like SL,Malaysia etc.But during that year they work maximum whereas in SL no hard work like they do in there country.That is the differance.
