This year Eid Al-Fitr may have 9 days holidays

Sunday, April 16, 2017

This time, people in Kuwait may get up to 9 days holiday for Eid Al-Fitr if the Ramadan month completes 30 days, local Arabic news paper reported.

According to report, if the Ramadan month completes 30 days, the first day of Eid Al-Fitr will fall on Monday, June 26 and the previous day — Sunday, June 25 (Ramadan 30) — will be an official holiday. Since June 24 is a Saturday, and Tuesday, June 28 and Wednesday, June 29 will be the second and third days of Eid Al-Fitr holidays respectively, the total holidays will be from Friday, June 23 to Friday June 30 and official work will resume on Sunday, July 2.

However if Ramadan ends within 29 days, the first day of Eid Al-Fitr will fall on Sunday, June 25. The second and third Eid Al-Fitr holidays will be on June 26 and June 27 respectively. Considering the weekend on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24, the total number of Eid Al-Fitr holidays will be only five days.

Tuesday and Wednesday (the second and third days of Eid Al Fitr) are falling on 27th and 28th. Not on 28th and 29th as stated above.
Bottom line is 29th, Thursday will be a working day.
However for people wanting to avail 9 long holidays can do so by applying for one day leave on 29th June.

Let us hope for 9 days holidays.
