So, back to the all-important question, when is the next UAE public holiday in 2021?
Well, according to the tweet above, the next public holiday is another long one combining Commemoration Day on Wednesday, December 1 and National Day on Thursday, December 2.
This means those of you who typically enjoy a two-day weekend will get a four-day-long break. However, don’t start planning anything just yet as we need to wait for the official announcement.
The United Arab Emirates is celebrating a milestone event this year on December 2, 2021 – its 50th Golden Jubilee.
The country has come a long way since the formation of the federation back in 1971 and there will be a number of celebrations taking place around the country as we draw closer to the big day. Expect fireworks, heritage and cultural events and much more.
As usual, we will keep you informed on both the holiday announcement as well as the biggest events and celebrations as soon as we know.
