The Algerian Moon Sighting Committee (Commission nationale d'observation du croissant lunaire) has announced that the upcoming End of Ramadan public holiday would be on Sunday, September 20, 2009.
In previous years, Algeria's announced dates for Muslim public holidays often diverged from those of the Umm al-Qura Saudi Calendar, but recently the announced dates have followed the Saudi dates quite closely (29-Sep-2008).
A follow-up governmental announcement confirmed that both Sunday and Monday, September 20 and 21, 2009, would be non-working, paid, public holidays in Algeria. Recall that, recently (24-Jul-2009), Algeria changed its weekends from the previous Thursday-Friday to the "mixed" or "semi-universal" Friday-Saturday.
