This year, many people in the country had the longest vacation ever. After the long weekend of Eid Al Fitr, people are getting back to their routine. But surprisingly, there are two more long weekends that will approach this year. So what are the long weekends we should be looking forward to? Here’s a list of all the public holidays and long weekends to look forward to.
List Of Long Weekends Of 2022
1. Arafat Day, Eid Ul Adha
This is the other big festivity Dubai celebrates. With a four day break from work, this is an excellent time for a trip out of the city, especially if you are not taking a summer vacation. After all, with the temperatures soaring, we need all the breaks we can! So here are a few things you can do over the summers while you relax over the long weekends. The first of these long weekends will take place from Zul Hijah 9 to 12. The four-day vacation will start from Saturday, July 9 to Tuesday, July 12. The moon sighting will determine the final announcement of these dates.
2. Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday
The birthday will fall on the 8th of October which is Saturday. While we all wish it was a long weekend, we really don’t know! So while this will be a dry day, this time of the year is one of the cooler months in Dubai. So if you wanna go camping or barbecuing, this might be the best time to mark your calendars and go outdoors.
