The next public holiday is set to be later this year in September for *drum roll please* Saudi National Day on Monday September 23.

As in the past, we will have to wait for the official announcement from the Saudi Arabia authorities. The holiday announcement usually comes a week or so before the day, and we will surely announce it as soon as we get confirmation.

What is Saudi National Day?

Saudi Arabia celebrates its National Day annually on September 23 to commemorate the unification of the nations of Najd and Hijaz into the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This historic merger took place in 1932 under the leadership of King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, marking a pivotal chapter in the nation’s history.

The occasion is typically marked with fireworks, parades packed with floats showcasing the highlights of each region of Arabia, music and traditional outfits, as well as loads of offers and promotions.
