Sources within the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission have indicated that the Kuwaiti Council of Ministers was considering the declaration of Thursday, December 24, 2015, as an additional non-working public holiday in Kuwait, should the upcoming annual Prophet's Birthday non-working public holiday fall on Wednesday, December 23, 2015, one day away from the Kuwaiti weekend.

In past years (2014-01-10, 2014-01-07, 2012-01-19, 2011-02-15 and 2011-01-22), though not systematically (2013-01-22), the Kuwaiti public holiday for the birthday of Prophet Mohammad was often moved to another date to adjust to a conflicting weekend, or to link to it.

Recall that, since 2007 (2007-08-04), weekends in Kuwait are Friday and Saturday.
