 For most countries, this is the same as default. However, for some countries it makes sense to add further types – this type accounts for this case. Currently this only affects the UK: local holidays are added as well. This is to include days that are only valid in one of countries – e.g. Jan 2 is a holiday only for Scotland.
 In some cases, working days are declared non-working days in order to form a longer period of consecutive non-working days. In exchange, weekend days become normal working days. For example, if May 1 falls on a Thursday, workers in Russia get the day off on the Friday and have to work on the following Sunday instead. This happens e.g. in 2014 – please see the calendar for January (Jan 4, Jan 5).
