The Algerian public sector ministry (Direction Générale de la Fonction Publique) has announced that Tuesday and Wednesday, July 20-21, 2021, had been declared as the dates of the upcoming Aïd El Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holidays in Algeria.

The aforementioned announcement reads as follows "Le dimanche 11 juillet 2021 coïncidera avec le 1er Dhou el Hidja 1442 de l’hégire et le rassemblement sur le Mont Arafat interviendra le lundi 9 Dhou el Hidja 1442, correspondant au 19 juillet 2021", going on to state that "l’Aïd El Adha sera célébré le mardi 10 Dhou el Hidja 1442 correspondant au 20 juillet 2021".

Contrary to last year (2020-07-29), when the Aïd El Adha public holidays coincided with the Algerian weekend (2009-07-24), this year's dates fall squarely in the middle of the Sunday-Thursday Algerian workweek.
