There is one thing that Georgia has taught me - everything is relative here.

So as a surprise come a news that today (March 3) is a public holiday in Georgia. Public holiday means that streets will be empty, many business won't work. 

So did as a surprise for me come Day of Svetsikhoveli last year, when I was surprised that nobody in Georgia replied to my e-mails. Just at the end of working day I learned this day was official public holiday.

So to avoid such scenarios in future I'm adding a Public Holiday list in Georgia for 2015.

In total there are 15 official Public Holidays here in Georgia, 9 of them (including Orthodox Easter) are related to Georgian Church
