The Moroccan Ministry of Religious Affairs (Ministère des Habous et des Affaires Islamiques) has announced that the date of the upcoming Aïd el-Kébir (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday would be on Wednesday, November 17, 2010.

Note that this is also the date chose by the Spanish cities of Ceuta (2009-09-18) and Melilla (2008-12-03), both enclaved on the Moroccan coast, for their very first Feast of Sacrifice public holidays.
