The government of Saudi Arabia has announced that this year's Eid al Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) public sector holidays would begin in Saudi Arabia on Friday, September 26, 2014, and that these Eid al Adha public sector holidays would not be linked to the annual National Day non-working public holiday of Saudi Arabia.
In the past the Eid Al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) Saudi public sector holidays, have regularly been extended from 10 days to 11 days at the min and sometimes to 16 days (26-Sep-2013, 17-Sep-2012 and 27-Oct-2011).
Last year (16-Sep-2013), a royal decree issued by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah, had declared Sunday, September 22, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Saudi Arabia to link the recently-changed Friday-Satuday weekend with the annual National Day public holiday on Monday, September 23, 2013.
