Saudi Arabia National Day!

Saudi Arabia

Every year, the September 23rd is supposed to be the Saudi National day which has been locally celebrated for the past years where they weren’t before.

I am not sure how long ago they’ve regulated that day to be an official holiday, which is such an interesting day to celebrate regardless of the relevant matters.

However, this year the national day will be on Tuesday September 23, 2008 and keep in mind that the weekend in Saudi is on Thursdays and Fridays.

Government workers will gladly have about two weeks as a holiday which I personally think that is a lot to be given away especially when you know such a long holiday could interrupts lots of business but who cares anyway!!!

Interestingly, The company that I work for is not and will not be celebrating the national day claiming that they have a plan for us, the plan says that instead of taking Tuesday as a holiday we will push it a little bit to Wednesday so you guys will enjoy such a long weekend then come back by Saturday freshen up and active. So I told myself please forgive them for not understanding the concept of giving away a holiday for such an event…anyways, Long Life Saudi!!
