Gabon's Ministre du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Prévoyance Sociale has announced that the date of the upcoming Aïd El Kebir (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday, would be observed as a non-working public holiday on Friday, October 26, 2012.

The announced date follows the Saudi Umm al-Qura calendar, as has generally been the case in the past (2010-11-14 and 2010-09-08).

The 2 Muslim public holidays for the End of Ramadan and the Feast of Sacrifice were added to the list of Gabonese public holidays a decade ago (1998-06-29).
