It’s always a pain going back to work after a long weekend of relaxing. The much awaited Eid holidays sadly coming to an end has forced us to returm to our daily routines. Well, if you're counting down the days to the next time we can enjoy a long weekend then you may be in luck as it has just been revealed that there’s a possibility of amother one heading our way sooner than we thought.
September 1 is likely to be the first of Muharram, the Hijri Islamic New Year. Which means YAY long weekend. But don’t get too excited, since the Islamic calendar works on the lunar cycle, the new year could either fall on Saturday, 31 August 31 or Sunday, 1 September.
The date will be confirmed in a few days, and if the stars align, say hello to a three day weekend!
If we miss out on this, there’s a five day long National Day weekend to look forward to.
We cant wait for this long weekend so we can enjoy a staycation soaking up the last bits of summer sun.
