The National Moon-Sighting Commission of Sénégal (Commission nationale de concertation sur le croissant lunaire - Conacoc) has announced that the upcoming Tabaski (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday would be on Friday, October 26, 2012.

As is often the case (2011-08-30 and 2007-12-18), we can expect many Senegalese Muslim communities, such as the Jamaatou Ibadou Rahamna, not to follow the recommendations of the CONACOC and instead follow the dates as announced by Saudi Arabia.
