Berber New Year) on January 12 is finally (10-Jan-2007) to become an annual non-working public holiday in Algeria, beginning in 2018 ("Dans le même esprit, et en présentant ses meilleurs vœux au peuple algérien à la veille de l'année 2018, le Président Abdelaziz Bouteflika a annoncé sa décision de consacrer Yennayer journée chômée et payée dès le 12 janvier prochain, le gouvernement étant chargé de prendre les dispositions appropriées à cet effet.").
