There’s only one public holiday left this year, and it’s already confirmed which days off we’ll have…
Yes, a lot of y’all were disappointed after Islamic New Year fell on a Saturday.
Which makes you wonder, when the next public holiday in the UAE will be.
The final public holiday of the year is already confirmed – and it’s a long one.
There are three public holiday days left in 2019, which will all fall in succession.
Commemoration Day was previously celebrated on November 30 but was moved to December 1 for 2019 – it falls on a Sunday. Commemoration Day will be marked one day prior to the two-day holiday for UAE National Day, which will be celebrated on Monday December 2 and Tuesday December 3 this year. December 2, 2019 marks 48 years since the UAE was formed.
So, for those that typically enjoy a Friday, Saturday weekend, the first weekend of December will be a blissful five day weekend, with work resuming on Wednesday December 4.
The UAE Cabinet approves public holidays for the public sector for the years 2019-2020, and grants the private sector equal holidays. The decision aims at achieving a balance between the two sectors and supporting the national economy. #UAEGov pic.twitter.com/VqQqU8IBFx— UAEGov (@uaegov) March 5, 2019
