Saudi Arabia Public Holidays 2013 Calendar

The biggest Arab nation in the Middle East– Saudi Arabia– takes Sharia (Islamic law) as the basis of running the government and ruling the country. As an outcome, a lot of public family holidays in Saudi Arabia are taken from major Islamic celebrations.

Every year, Saudi Arabia just observes 2 Islamic events (Eid al-fitr and Eid al-Adha) and one National day. The Eid al-Fitr are officially commemorated for about 3 till 10 days in pattern while Eid al-Adha are commemorated for about 10-14 days. Yet, some exclusive companies are generally closed for just 3-5 days on both vacations.
