The government of Djibouti has released the official list of non-working public holidays, and their duration, for the calendar year 2016 in Djibouti.

As usual (2015-01-25, 2014-01-06, 2013-01-22, 2012-01-11 and 2005-12-26), the aforementioned list of official Djibouti public holidays follows the outlines of the "arrêté n° 77-347/PR/MI du 4.10.1977 règlementant les jours fériés, chômés et payés en République de Djibouti" with the addition of the Christmas Day public holiday ("Arrêté n° 77-609/PR/CAB portant additif à l'arrêté n°77-0347/INT/AA du 04 octobre 1977, réglementant les jours fériés chômés et payés en République de Djibouti") having been subsequently canceled ("Arrêté n°80-0931/PR portant rectificatif de l'arrêté n° 77-347/PR/MI du 4.10.1977 règlementant les jours fériés, chômés et payés en République de Djibouti").

For the 5th consecutive year, the list of non-working public holidays, and their duration, for the calendar year 2016 in Djibouti, has abandoned the Libyan LCRSS Muslim calendar to determine the dates of Muslim non-working public holidays in Djibouti, in favor of the more consensual Saudi Umm al-Qora Muslim calendar.
