The government of the Ivory Coast has announced that it had declared Sunday, November 6, 2011, as the date of this year's non-working public holiday (jour férié et chômé) for the upcoming Tabaski (Feast of Sacrifice).

When contacted, the government of the Ivory Coast expanded on the aforementioned announcement by stressing that despite the fact that the 2011 Tabaski non-working public holiday falls on a Sunday, there would be no additional non-working public holiday declared on Monday, November 7, 2011, as was done for the most-recent National Day public holiday (2011-08-04).

However, later, in a last minute announcement, President Alassane Ouattara changed his mind and declared Monday, November 7, 2011, as an additional day in lieu public holiday for the 2011 Tabaski.
