Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular declaring Saturday and Sunday, November 24 and 25, 2012, as a non-working public holidays in Bahrain to mark the upcoming anniversary of Ashoora.

Note that, as Fridays and Saturdays are the weekly days of rest in Bahrain (2006-08-02), the aforementioned circular goes on to state that "whereas Saturday is part of the weekly public holiday, it will be offset with a recess on Monday the 26h of November 2012" meaning that Monday, November 26, 2012, will also be a non-working public holiday for the Bahraini governmental ministries, directorates and institutions.
