Mauritius 2014 Public Holidays Announced

The Cabinet of the Government of Mauritius has released its approved its annual list of the official non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the upcoming calendar year 2014.

Once again (02-Jun-2012 and 14-Sep-2011), the aforementioned communique does not include any new public holidays, as it did a decade ago (26-Jul-2001), but it does confirm the often elusive dates for Thaipoosam Cavadee, Maha Shivaratree, Ougadi, Ganesh Chaturthi, Eid-Ul-Fitr, and Divali.

In particular, based on the dates announced for the Mauritius Divali public holiday in some recent years (02-Jun-2012, 16-Jul-2007, 19-Jun-2006, 26-Apr-2004 and 30-Sep-2002), it appears clearly that the Government of Mauritius is using the northern Indian method of calculating Diwali, rather than the southern Indian method of calculating Deepavali, used by almost all non-Indian governments where Diwali/Deepavali is an official national non-working public holiday.

Contrary to what happened 2 years ago (14-Sep-2011), the date announced for the Eid-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) seems correct.
