its called National day.. by Emiri Decree
It seems to be listed in a couple of places PM, as an addition to the Islamic Eids.
"Besides these two religious celebrations there are two other fixed holidays: Accession Day and Independence Day".
Jauntie, he's the Emir.
yeah wake up.........
it is Accession Day (the anniversary of the day the King took the throne) but it may just be a hol for government officials - I dunno.
Diamondgirl would know - or PM, I expect.
Wake up there are no holidays in Qatar only 3rd Sept. and 2 Eids. thats all.
well, well, well!
and well, again ... You would think everyone would know about it if it was official for ALL to enjoy, wouldn't you?
Maybe call the tourist office?
they call it Accession Day and it is in Qatar! Look here:
But I need confirmation....
on 27 June in somewhere called Djibouti (wherever that may be!) Africa, I believe.
Was all I could find through an initial, very quick Google search - you made me curious :o)
