KUWAIT CITY, Oct 31: The Civil Service Commission is considering announcing a public holiday for the New Year 2024. The holiday will either be one day corresponding to Monday, January 1, 2024, or extended for 4 days from Friday, December 29, 2023, until Monday, January 1, 2024, and the official working hours will resume the next day ie on Tuesday, January 2, on the basis that Sunday, December 31, is a “rest day” because it falls between two holidays — Saturday, December 30, which is a rest day, and Monday, January 1, 2024, which is an official holiday, it was decided to consider the day that falls between two days off.

The CSC pointed out that the first precedent was in 2017, when it was decided to consider Sunday, December 31, 2017, as a day of rest due to its falling between Saturday, December 30, which is a day of rest, and Monday, January 1, 2018, which was an official holiday on the occasion of New Year’s Day, reports Al-Anba daily.

The second precedent was in 2022, as it was decided to consider Thursday, May 5, 2022, as a rest day because it came between the Eid al-Fitr holiday and Friday – the official day off.
