In a surprise last-minute move, the government of Nepal has declared Monday, November 7, 2011, as a nationwide non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming Eid al-Adha, (aka. Bakr Eid or Feast of Sacrifice).

Normally, since 2007 (30-Aug-2007), when the government of Nepal agreed that public holidays would be given on Muslim festivals, the Eid al-Adha public holiday has been a simple allowance, limited to Muslim civil servants, to be off work on the day of the main Muslim festivals.

It is the first time that the Eid al-Adha is declared as a nationwide non-working public holiday in Nepal.
