Public Holidays in the Maldives
Muslim holidays occur according to local sightings of phases of the moon; the dates given below are based on the Umm al-Qura Calendar of Saudi Arabia and may be subject to local variations such as holidays starting a day later. Many Muslim holidays, especially the Eids, last between 3 and 4 days.
Note: The Muslim day starts at sunset and not at midnight; therefore the holidays listed here actually begin the evening before the displayed date. Weekends in the Maldives are Friday and Saturdays.
New Year's Day
Eid al-Fitr (Ramadan ends)
Eid-ul-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice)
Mawlid al-Nabi (Birth of the Prophet)
