Morocco has released its annual list of non-working public holidays in Morocco for the upcoming calendar year 2019.

As usual (2018-01-02, 2017-01-03, 2015-12-31, 2014-10-21 and 2013-12-28), the salient points of the aforementioned announcement are the dates of the Muslim non-working public holidays in Morocco for the upcoming calendar year 2019, which are subject to last-minute changes (2017-11-18, 2017-09-20, 2017-08-23 and 2015-10-14), though most often not (2018-11-10, 2016-11-30, 2016-10-01 and 2016-09-03), and the differential between the non-working public holidays in Morocco for the private sector, and the non-working public holidays in Morocco for the public sector.

For the moment, no mention has been made of the possible addition of January 13, as a new annual non-working public holiday in Morocco, on the occasion of the Amazigh New Year, as had been hinted a year ago by the spokesperson for the Government of Morocco, El Othmani Mustapha Khalfi (2018-01-05) following neighboring Algeria's addition of the Amazigh (aka. Berber) New Year as a new annual public holiday in Algeria (2017-12-27), though on January 12.
