Virtually every day this year will be a holiday somewhere in the world with business and government offices closed while employees watch parades, pray, or perhaps enjoy a quiet holiday at home with their family. Seasoned business travelers build their schedules around these holidays, because the alternative can be a frustrating day wasted in a hotel room while the local people, from the top executives to the people in the streets observe their traditional holiday rituals. In cases where holidays fall on Saturday or Sunday, commercial establishments may be closed the preceding Friday or following Monday. Although other countries holidays are not listed in this schedule, they should also be considered when appointments are made abroad. The holiday schedules used are from unnofficial sources, therefore this calendar is only intended as a working guide.
