In terms of working days, March will be the average month, since the number of working days in it will be 21.

Four working weeks will be full, and another two days will capture the beginning of the fifth week, after which April will come.

In 2020, this holiday falls on a day off - Sunday. Traditionally, work teams congratulate colleagues on the eve of this date, so most teams will hold congratulations on March 6 - on Friday before the weekend.

Under current law, a weekend that coincides with a public holiday is postponed the next day, so after March 8, March 9 (Monday), it will also become a weekend.
