Following an earlier announcement by Dar Al-Fatwa, the Prime Minister of the Government of Lebanon has declared Sunday, October 1, 2017, as the date of the annual non-working public holiday in Lebanon, to mark Achoura in 2017, a day later than the previously-announced date of the Achoura public holiday of Lebanon for the calendar year 2017.
The aforementioned announcement that the non-working public holidays in Lebanon for the calendar year 2017 for the upcoming Achoura annual non-working public holiday in Lebanon would be moved to Sunday, October 1, 2017, thus further modifies the annual list of Lebanese non-working bank holidays and public holidays in Lebanon for the calendar year 2017, released and later amended earlier this year (2017-09-06, 2017-06-25, 2017-04-15, 2017-04-08 and 2016-12-08), based in part on the Government of Lebanon's announced annual list of official Lebanese non-working public holidays in Lebanon for the upcoming calendar year 2017 (2017-01-22).
