The Kuwaiti government has declared Sunday, January 3, 2021, as a day in lieu substitute public holiday in Kuwait, January 1st falls on a weekend day this year.

Considering the annual, January 1st public holiday of Kuwait, and the Friday-Saturday weekend, this means 3 consecutive days of public holidays in Kuwait, from January 1-3, 2021, inclusively.

Last year, the Kuwaiti government has declared Thursday, January 2, 2020, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Kuwait, as it then fell between 2 public holidays (2019-12-07).

Recall that, since 2007 (2007-08-04), weekends in Kuwait are Friday and Saturday.
