Bahrain 2012 Public Holidays Announced

Bahrain's Central Bank has published its list of expected bank and public holidays in Bahrain for the calendar year 2012.

As was the case in past years (2010-07-02 and 2009-06-22), this published list does not contain the days in lieu that occur when a public holiday falls on one of the weekends days as defined in Bahrain (2006-08-02).

The aforementioned list also seems based on the Arithmetic Islamic Calendar rather than the Saudi Umm al-Qura calendar. We therefore expect many of the dates announced for the 2012 Muslim public holidays in Bahrain to be changed at the last minute.
