We have exciting news for you! Get ready to make the most of the next long weekend. Celebrate the UAE’s 52nd National Day in December and enjoy a well-deserved break.
In line with the government’s decision, private sector employees will now have the same number of holidays as government staff. Mark your calendars for the UAE National Day celebrations on Saturday, December 2, and Sunday, December 3. With the public holiday for Commemoration Day typically observed on December 1, it’s highly likely that we will have an extended weekend to enjoy.
Official confirmation is awaited regarding whether this tradition will continue in 2023.
Commemoration Day, established by the late President Sheikh Khalifa in 2015, holds great significance as it pays tribute to the unwavering dedication and sacrifices of our military and civilian service people. It is a day of remembrance to honor those who bravely laid down their lives while serving our beloved country.
