RUMOUR: Thursday, Dec 17 a public holiday?

There are some rumours going around that Thursday, December 17, could be a public holiday on the occasion of Qatar National Day.

December 18 is usually a national holiday, but #QND2015 falls on a Friday this time, which is a weekend anyway. I am sure expats and Qataris alike will not be pleased with missing a holiday, right? To compensate for this, the government could declare Dec 17 as a holiday.

This is not official, but just a rumour at this point. But have a look at this tweet.

Mr. Q claims his source is someone from the national day committee. We will have to wait for an official announcement from the national day committee now.

You can follow QND committee on Twitter/Facebook for anouncements. Or just follow Qatar Living on social media.

What do you think? Have you heard anything about this? Let's hope Mr. Q is right, huh?
