The government of Mauritania has released a communiqué de la Présidence declaring Friday, January 2, 2015, as an additional non-working public holiday in Mauritania to link the annual January 1st non-working public holiday and the subsequent "fête du Maouloud" (the Prophet's Birthday).
The aforementioned date of Friday, January 2, 2015 as an additional non-working public holiday in Mauritania is in addition to the dates that were announced, earlier this week (2014-12-29), in the list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritania for the calendar year 2015.
Note that, as Mauritania is back to Saturday/Sunday weekends since this past autumn (2014-09-12), the aforementioned announcement of Friday, January 2, 2015 as an additional non-working public holiday in Mauritania, in conjunction with the annual January 1st non-working public holiday, and the January 3 "fête du Maouloud" (the Prophet's Birthday), means a 4-day public holidays period in Mauritania in early 2015.
