HUT RI / Hari Ulang Tahun Proklamasi Kemerdekaan Indonesia Ke-64
|This coming Monday 17 August 2009, Indonesia is celebrating the 64th Independence Day. Indonesia Independence Day is observed to mark the Proclamation (Declaration) of Indonesian Independence on Friday, August 17, 1945. Prior to the proclamation, Indonesia had been colonized by the Portuguese, Dutch, and Japanese for over 300 years.|
What to expect?
Independence day is a huge celebration in Indonesia. Most businesses and offices are closed on the Independence day, but preparations are started 2-3 months before that. Business and locals are chirping in for activities with donations. Streets and building around the country are decorated with the ornaments such as Indonesian red-white flags and congratulatory banners.
Days around the festival, visitors can observe lots of interesting activities. In almost every villages, town and cities, you can watch sports competitions and free concerts. On the day itself, the main attractions are the town parades, with marching bands, decorated cars and bikes, barongs, and kuda lumpings.
For the locals, one of the most anticipated activity is the panjat pinang game. People groups into a team of 3-6 persons each, to attempt a climb of slippery poles for gifts and prizes on top of the pole. It’s really quite fun to watch.

List of Australian 2012 public holidays.
Most of public holidays in Australia are declared on a state and territory basis, except for some holidays which are observed in all states and territories, and are therefore de facto national holidays.
Usually, public and private workers are entitled to take off a public holiday with regular pay, while businesses that are normally open on a public holiday may require employees to work on the day. Traditionally, in this case, the workers were paid at a penalty rate – usually 1½ (known as “time and a half”) or 2 times (known as “double time”) the regular pay. In recent years this tradition has changed somewhat. Most of the entitlement to penalty rates of pay has been reduced or entirely eliminated in many work places. More >
In Vietnam, workers get the day off work during the public holidays. There are a total of 9 days of Vietnamese public holidays a year, making it the lowest in the region.

New Year’s Day
Friday, 1 January 2010
Tet Nguyen Dan
Lunar New Year / Vietnamese New Year, Tet Nguyên Ðán, more commonly known by its shortened name Tet, is the largest, most important and popular holiday and festival in Vietnam. It is the Vietnamese New Year based on the Lunar calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The name Tet Nguyên Ðán (in Sino-Vietnamese) can be loosely translated as Feast of the First Morning. Tet is celebrated on the same day as Chinese New Year. It takes place from the first day of the first month of the Lunar calendar (around late January or early February) until at least the third day. However the corresponding public holiday started a day earlier, from last day of the last lunar month. Visitors may experience difficulties during this period as shops, restaurants and public services close and prices tend to go up in the few shops that remain open.
