This is according to information shared by the UAE’s Cabinet in an infographic, which shows approved national holidays for this year and the next.
And it looks like there’ll be a super long, five-day weekend for the combined celebration of Commemoration Day and National Day.
Commemoration Day will be celebrated on Sunday the 1st December, with the following two days (Monday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd December) being devoted to celebrating UAE National Day and the spirit of the union. Added to the weekend of the 29th-30th of November and that equals five full days for most of us.
The KHDA has already confirmed schools will be closed over that same period.
