2021 Public Holidays Sudan Service
The above is the list of 2021 public holidays declared in Sudan which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Sudan holiday calendar for 2021 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.
Sudan has 11 public holidays in one year. Public holidays in Sudan can be as long as four days. These public holidays adhere to the lunar cycle and thus are subjected to change each year. Religion and politics greatly influence the holidays. The public holidays are regulated and published by the Ministry of Labor at the end of each year.
All organizations are required by the government to acknowledge the holidays regardless of the date they occur. The Muslim bound holidays are set under the Umm al-Qura calendar used in Sudan.
Fridays and Saturdays are considered weekends in Sudan. Employers are required by the government to give the employees days off from work on public holidays. Different public holidays call for different occasions and manner of celebrations. The culture and heritage of the community often reveal itself during these celebrations. Most of the holidays are a family event, even though certain religion-based holidays draw the respective communities to the mosque.
Business is slow, although most of the big retail shops close down during major public holidays such as Independence Day. The human traffic is intense during the day and reduces at night as most of the celebrations are taken indoors. Generally, mobility during these holidays is restrictive since most of the public transport close early.
The country has a wide selection of natural beauty with ancient historical monuments that draw tourists from all over the world. Sudan is easily accessed through the sea and land from all regions of the world.
