Iran's Islamic Consultative Assembly has approved the list of official public holidays in Iran for the Persian year 1388, running from March 2008, to March 2009.

The list of official public holidays is relatively unchanged since Persian year 1386 (2007-03-08), with a few public holidays based on the Islamic Calendar moved to the following day.

For the third year in a row (2007-03-08 and 2006-03-13), the current list still includes all five annual public holidays meant to have been canceled in 2005 by Iran's Majles Social Committee (2005-08-18 and 2005-04-13). It can now safely be assumed that the cancellation of these 5 annual public holidays has been shelved.
