In case you hadn't heard, earlier this month, the UAE cabinet approved national holidays for the year 2019-2020. the big surprise - and cause for joy - was the fact that the private sector will be granted the same number of holidays as the public sector during that period. The decision aims at enhancing the balance between the two sectors and supporting the national economy in its various fields.
Not mentioned in the tweet's holiday line-up is Isra'a Wal Mi’raj. Al Isra'a Wal Mi’raj is an Islamic holiday, which is observed annually on the 27th day of the Islamic month of Rajab, according to the Hijri calendar. The holiday marks the night Allah took Mohammad (PBUH) on a journey from Makkah to Jerusalem, and then to heaven. The journey was made in a single night, hence the name.
