The Surinamese Minister of the Interior, Bronto Somohardjo, has announced that the upcoming Ied-Ul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holiday of Suriname would be observed on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, a date which has been declared a non-working public holiday in Suriname ("That day is equated with Sunday").
The aforementioned announcement that the upcoming upcoming Ied-Ul-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holiday of Suriname would be observed on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, is in line with the annual list of expected bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Suriname dates for the calendar year 2021, released earlier this year (2021-01-22).
As stated by the Ministry of the Interior, "On Sundays and days that are equated to Sunday from government roads, such as national holidays and anniversaries, a total lockdown is in effect. So also on Eid-Ul-Adha".
Two years ago (2019-08-05), 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.
Last year (2020-07-27), the July 31 public holiday adjoined a weekend, leading to a 3-day weekend public holiday.
But, this year, the Ied-Ul-Adha holiday will last only 1 day.
