The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has announced that it has declared a public holiday in Kuwait, on Sunday, January 1, 2017, the date of the annual New Year's day non-working public holiday in Kuwait.

In the past, though this is not the case this year, one-off western New Year public holidays were declared by the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission whenever January 1st occurred near (22-Dec-2011) or during (24-Dec-2015, 26-Nov-2010 and 17-Dec-2009) the Kuwaiti weekend (04-Aug-2007), though not always systematically (19-Dec-2013 and 08-Dec-2013).

Kuwait changed its weekends to Friday-Saturday, almost a decade ago (04-Aug-2007 and 03-Jun-2007).
