Mauritius 2013 Public Holidays Announced

The Cabinet of the Government of Mauritius has released its approved list of the official non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the upcoming calendar year 2013.

Once again (14-Sep-2011), the aforementioned communiqué does not include any new public holidays, as it did a decade ago (26-Jul-2001), but it does confirm the often elusive dates for Thaipoosam Cavadee, Maha Shivaratree, Ougadi, Ganesh Chaturthi, Eid-Ul-Fitr, and Divali.

In particular, based on the dates announced for the Mauritius Divali public holiday in some recent years (16-Jul-2007, 19-Jun-2006, 26-Apr-2004 and 30-Sep-2002), it now appears clear that the Government of Mauritius is using the northern Indian method of calculating Diwali, rather than the southern Indian method of calculating Deepavali, used by almost all non-Indian governments where Diwali/Deepavali is an official national non-working public holiday.

Contrary to what happened last year (14-Sep-2011), the date announced for the Eid-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) seems correct.
