The government of Nepal has announced that Sunday, October 28, 2012, had been declared as a non-working public holiday across the country on account of the upcoming Bakra Eid/Eid ul Joha (Feast of Sacrifice).
In last spring's (29-Mar-2012) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2069 (April 2012-April 2013), the date of the public holiday for the Bakra Eid/Eid ul Joha (Feast of Sacrifice) non-working public holiday was set as Saturday, October 27, 2012.
After a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (13-Jan-2001), Nepal observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays.
Muslim public holidays were added to the official list of Nepalese public holidays for 2008 (01-Oct-2008), after years of protests by the Muslim minority in Nepal (30-Jun-2007), and maintained for the last 5 years (09-Sep-2010 and 20-Sep-2009).
