Well, according to the tweet, the next public holiday in the lineup is Prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) birthday which is set to fall on Thursday, October 21. That’s another three-day long weekend for those who generally have Friday and Saturday off.
However, don’t start planning anything just yet as we need to wait for the official announcement. As usual, we will keep you informed as soon as we know.
After this, the next and last of the UAE public holidays of the year is Commemoration Day and National Day which falls in December.
Commemoration Day falls on Wednesday, December 1 while National Day is on Thursday, December 2. Pair this with the usual weekend and you will get a four-day break for those who normally work from Sunday to Thursday.
