Eritrean 2013 Public Holidays Released

The Eritrean government has announced the list of official national and religious non-working public holidays in Eritrea for the calendar year 2013.

As was often the case in past years (2012-01-03), the announced dates of 2013 Muslim public holidays in Eritrea follow, or even precede, those calculated by the Umm al-Qura calendar used by Saudi Arabia, and are often later changed at the last-minute (2010-09-08 and 2009-09-18).

In the meantime, the aforementioned list of official national and religious non-working public holidays in Eritrea for the calendar year 2013 does contain some obvious errors, in particularly for the second day of the 2013 Eid al-Adha non-working public holiday in Eritrea.
