It's been a L-O-N-G couple of months and the holiday season is not as far away as it seems. December is just around the corner and the KHDA (The Knowledge and Human Development Authority) is kicking off celebrations with a 3-day vacay for Dubai students. The department announced the amazing news on Twitter (how 2019 of them) and everyone is super excited. I'm already planning my vacay...
It’s raining holidays! Schools will be closed on Dec 1, 2 & 3 for #CommemorationDay & UAE #NationalDay. Students & teachers will be excitedly skipping through school gates again on Dec 4. Enjoy! — KHDA (@KHDA) November 12, 2019
The holidays will start on Sunday December 1 and schools will resume on Wednesday December 4. If you count the weekend before, that gives you 5 WHOLE DAYS. Yaasssss.
Why a 3-day holiday?
December 1 is because of Commemoration Day and December 2 – 3 is in honour of the U.A.E’s 48th National Day. It's also a public holiday for everyone so you and your friends and fam can sit back, relax and get ready for the last month of 2019. It's here people! Can you beleive it? The year has flown by.
