It is kind of unusual how the vacation holidays are defined in Oman. Usually you hear about incoming public holidays, but you don't know about the exact dates. Then, only few days before, the Sultan defines officially the date of the incoming public holidays.
For example, yesterday was the "Renaissance Day" celebrating the day the Sultan has acceded to power. But we only had the confirmation of the date last saturday !
Here is the next supposed public holidays for 2007 :
- 13/14 October Eid al Fitr
- 18 November National Day and HM Sultan Qaboos's birthday
- 22/23 December Eid ul Adha (Feast of the sacrifice)
