Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have announced holidays for Eid al-Fitr, a significant celebration marking the end of Ramadan. In Saudi Arabia, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development declared a four-day holiday starting from Monday, April 8th, extending until Thursday, April 11th. With Friday and Saturday already being weekends in Saudi Arabia, employees will enjoy a six-day break to observe the festive occasion. Following the Eid celebrations, both public and private sector employees are scheduled to return to work on Sunday, April 14th.

In Pakistan, Eid al-Fitr is anticipated to fall on April 10th or 11th. To honor this occasion, three official holidays have been announced, starting from Wednesday, April 10th, and continuing until Friday, April 12th. With the weekend immediately following the Eid holidays, Pakistanis will relish a five-day break to partake in the festivities and cherish moments with family and friends.

This year’s Eid al-Fitr holds special significance as it signifies the conclusion of Ramadan, with the first fast observed in Saudi Arabia on March 11th. The holiday period allows individuals to engage in religious and cultural traditions, spend quality time with loved ones, and rejuvenate before returning to work. The announcement of extended holidays in both Saudi Arabia and Pakistan reflects the importance of Eid al-Fitr in the Islamic calendar and the value placed on celebrating this joyous occasion with family and community.
