Still recovering from the Eid holidays? Yeah, we feel you.

Now that Eid Al Fitr is over, we’re already counting down the days left for the next long holiday – and it’s closer than you might expect.

So, if you couldn’t get away on that dream staycation you wanted, then you can always start planning your next holiday around these dates:

August 10 – Arafat Day
This year, this day might fall on the 10th of August – which is a Saturday – so, you know what that means: LONG weekend! But this will again, be subject to moon-sighting, so let’s hope for the best.

August 11 – Eid Al Adha
A three-day holiday is expected for Eid Al Adha this year as well, beginning on the 11th of August (Sunday) together with the holiday for Arafat Day on the 10th of August. Perfect time to plan a trip, maybe?


September 1 – Islamic New Year
There’s a possibility of having a long weekend towards the end of August/beginning of September, depending on the moon-sighting. The Islamic New Year is expected to fall on the 1st of September, so we might get a day off on the 31st of August (Saturday).

November 9 – Milad Al Nabi
A long weekend is expected to mark Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) birthday on the 9th of November, which falls on a Saturday. However, this is subject to moon-sighting. So, let’s wait and watch.

November 30 – Martyr’s Day
Also known as Commemoration Day, a public holiday has been declared on the 30th of November (Saturday), making it a long weekend for the UAE.

December 2 – UAE National Day
Falling on the 2nd of December, there is a possibility that the two-day holiday for UAE National Day might get clubbed together with the holiday for Martyr’s Day – that’s another long weekend to look forward to this year!
