Mauritania's Commission centrale d'observation du croissant lunaire has announced that the upcoming El Id Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday, would be observed on Wednesday, October 16, 2013, in Mauritania.
Contrary to some previous years (2010-11-15, 2001-12-13, 2001-03-04 and 2000-01-05), but not all (2011-11-01), the President of Maurtitania did not issue a decree extending the El Id Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) public holiday for a second day in Mauritania, although it is implicitly understood that this will be the case.
