Well the holidays have been announced for the Islamic New Year next week, but there's a catch. The holiday will be one day off, but the day to be taken off is not yet set, because it will fall on the First of Muhharam (aka the first day of the new year) - and this day is not yet known for sure - another job for the moon spotting committee I guess.
The holiday will most likely fall next Sunday (2nd October) but there's a chance it might be on Monday (3rd October). The moon sighting committee are getting their moon-gaze on this coming Saturday.... so we won't know if we have to go to work on Sunday for sure until Saturday night....
I'll take a day off though!
