The Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development has officially confirmed this extended break, granting most employees a chance to unwind.

The holiday will commence on Monday and last until Thursday, April 11, providing residents with a six-day reprieve when combined with the existing weekend on Friday and Saturday in the Kingdom.
Eidul Fitr, marking the conclusion of Ramadan which commenced on March 11 this year, is a significant event for over 1.8 billion Muslims globally. 
During Ramadan, Muslims observe fasting from dawn to dusk, emphasizing spiritual growth and introspection.
Eidul Fitr serves as a jubilant occasion for Muslims worldwide, fostering family gatherings, gift exchanges, communal meals, and expressions of gratitude for the blessings received throughout Ramadan. 
Special congregational prayers will be performed in mosques or open spaces, adding to the festive atmosphere.
