    Can you clarify what happens when the holiday is on a Saturday or Sunday? Does it move to the Monday?

    thanks, very helpful to have them at hand ahead of time.
    moving King's day is in my opinion the last step
    before they will also move Christmas Day or the beginning of the New Year to suit a a week's shedule, lol.
