Every year also Easter are public holidays, so Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Monday should be added to this list of public holidays. Easter is every year on another date, most of the time in March or April, so it is not clear on which date it should be added. 
 
The national days, which eventually are on a Saturday or Sunday are for that particular year planned on the next Monday.
