The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has confirmed that it would once again move the date of the upcoming annual non-working public holiday in Kuwait for the Prophet's Birthday, from Monday, January 13, to Thursday, January 16, 2014, to adjoin a nearby weekend.

Earlier this week (2014-01-07), sources within the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission had stated that the Kuwaiti Council of Ministers would almost certainly move the observance of the upcoming annual Prophet's Birthday non-working public holiday from Monday, January 13, to Thursday, January 16, 2014.

In past years (2012-01-19, 2011-02-15 and 2011-01-22), the public holiday for the birthday of Prophet Mohammad was often moved to another date due to a conflicting weekend, although this was not the case last year (2013-01-22).
