The Ministry of the Interior of the government of Suriname announced that the upcoming Ied-Ul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holiday of Suriname would be observed on Friday, July 31, 2020, a date which has been declared a non-working public holiday in Suriname.
The aforementioned announcement that the upcoming upcoming Ied-Ul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holiday of Suriname would be observed on Friday, July 31, 2020, is in line with the annual list of expected bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Suriname dates for the calendar year 2020, released earlier this year (2020-01-20).
Contrary to last year (2019-08-05), when the annual Dag der Inheemsen (Indigenous People's Day) annual public holiday of Suriname (2007-08-08), dovetailed with the Ied-Ul-Adha, occurring on the preceding Friday, leading to a period of 4 consecutive non-working days and public holidays in Suriname, this year the Ied-Ul-Adha holiday will only last 3 days.
