The Eid Al-Adha vacations have been announced. Public sector employees in KSA will get to enjoy 11 days off for Eid Al-Adha. The vacation will start on Oct. 10 (Thursday, Dul Hijjah 5) and end on Oct. 20 (Sunday, Dul Hijjah 15). Normal working hours will resume from Oct. 21 (Monday).
PS It feels strange to use the word “vacation.” I really miss speaking British English!
i hope you all have a great family Friday ahead. We finally managed to get our schedule back on track, and instead of waking up at midnight, we wake up at 4am! It’s amazing to be up so early. We usually go for a 30-60 minute walk before breakfast and with the cool weather, birds singing and life returning back into the ground, you finish your walk feeling sensational and thoroughly energised! They say it’s the little things that help you appreciate the big picture. I am so grateful that I have a husband who enjoys long walks, which in turn makes my life in Riyadh so much more enjoyable!
