The public holiday’s dates are prone to change as they are based on the signing of the moon. Religion and democracy influence the nation's public holidays. Oman is one of the oldest independent states, and as a result, the society clings firmly to its beliefs, culture, and norms. The holidays are celebrated different depending on their nature. Families go to the mosque to pray while on other holidays they fast.

The government has the power to alter or prolong a holiday when the situation calls for it. Aside from religion, Oman public holidays are influenced and observed by social affairs, a democracy such as the public holiday for Independence Day. There are public holidays that go for one day and those that can go for up to two weeks. During these festivals, the society celebrates by holding feasts.
