How to rest in April 2018
In April, spring is fully in its right. This is evidenced not only by the revived vegetation, but by the flooded singing of birds. During this period, people's hearts are filled with positive and optimism, so it is no coincidence that Russian citizens are interested in how we rest in April 2018.
Weekends and holidays
Unfortunately, at this wonderful time, the Russians will not be able to use the weekend on a holiday. Public holidays this month simply do not exist. Only Saturdays and Sundays will remain free from work, except for one day. The fact is that the Ministry of Labor decided to arrange a holiday for the Russians and to make a long weekend for the May holidays. For this purpose, it was decided to make 28.05.18 - Saturday working day, so that Monday - 30.04.18 to make a day off. Such a transfer allows you to combine the 04/29/18, 04/30/18 and 05/01/18, 05/02/18 in a single long weekend. Such a shift will not affect the total number of holidays in April. In general, in April in Russia the following picture will be formed:
|Saturday and Sunday:||9|
It is worth noting that this will be the case during the five-day working week. However, there are enterprises and educational institutions where work does not stop on Saturdays. In this case, in April, only four days will be spent on vacation. Workers of such organizations will work 26 days.
Rest time also depends on the number of working hours per week. If you work in an enterprise where a 48-hour mode is set per week, then in April you will have to spend 168 hours to work. If your work week is 36 hours, then the number of working hours will be 151 hours. Even less will have to work at 24 hour working week - 100 hours.
The absence of public holidays in April does not mean that Russians will have no reason to have fun. You can start laughing right from the first day of the month. April 1 is the funniest day in our country. During it, everyone tries to play each other as best he can. Probably, there is no person in our country who at least once did not “fall for such a bait.”Odessa is still the capital of laughter and humor. Every year, on April 1, gay booths and clownery are held on which thousands of spectators gather.
04/07/18 year will celebrate Health Day. The holiday has an international character, which means the importance of maintaining excellent well-being not only in our country, but throughout the world. The purpose of the holiday is to promote a healthy lifestyle and attract public attention to the most pressing health problems. Currently, the most discussed topic is the availability of quality medicine.
04/12/18 will be devoted to our aviation and astronautics. Despite the fact that the first launch of a satellite and a man into space took place in the last century, the Russians still feel pride in our space program. Now an international space station is operating in the orbit of our planet, which continues the traditions of the discoverers of space. In our country, great importance is attached to the aerospace industry. It is no coincidence that the upcoming expedition to Mars is on the agenda.
04/15/18 - On this day, the entire public of our country will discuss the importance of environmental knowledge.It is no secret that our planet every year becomes less and less suitable for life.
