The government of the United Republic Of Tanzania has announced that the upcoming Maulid (Prophet's Birthday) bank holiday and non-working public holiday in Tanzania would be observed on Thursday, December 24, 2015.
The aforementioned announcement ("Hivyo tarehe 24/12/2015 ni Sikukuu Kitaifa") of Thursday, December 24, 2015, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Tanzania on account of the upcoming Maulid (Prophet's Birthday) non-working public holiday in Tanzania, is in line with the list of official bank holidays and non-working public holidays dates in Tanzania for the calendar year 2015, released earlier this year (2015-01-23 and 2015-01-04).
As is often the case (2013-01-23, 2012-01-04, 2010-12-30, 2009-10-27, 2009-03-04 and 2009-01-08), the dates of Muslim public holidays are later than many of the other countries of Africa and the Middle East.
