It's a Holiday!

We said earlier in the week that it looked like Sunday, September 24th would be a holiday here in Oman. 

However, we were waiting for the moon sighting committee to confirm it, it has now been confirmed that Friday, September 22nd will be the first day of Muharram which means that today Thursday, September 21 will be the last day of the current Islamic Year and therefore Sunday, September 24, will be the new Islamic Year Holiday here in Oman. Happy New Year!
