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 Tuesday, October 15, 2013.

As was generally the case in the past (2012-10-23, 2010-11-14 and 2010-09-08), but not systematically (2013-08-07), the aforementioned announced date follows the Saudi Umm al-Qura calendar.

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).
