4 Day Holiday for Saudi National Day 2019
The Ministry of Civil Service said Sunday (22 September 2019) ahead of National Day on Monday (23 September 2019) will be a holiday for public sector employees.
The ministry said in response to an inquiry through its official Twitter account that “Sunday will be a holiday because one working day falls between two holidays.”
According to the Ministry, the national day holiday will start on Thursday evening 19, September 2019 and end on Monday, 23 September 2019.
National Day is always celebrated on September 23 to commemorate the renaming of the Kingdom of Nejd and Hejaz to Saudi Arabia by a royal decree from King Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud in 1932.
