Holidays in the Dubai Culture

There are about 10 Holidays in Dubai. Of the 10 Dubai holidays, few are very important dates in the Islamic calendar. 

The Prophet's ascension (Al Isr’a Wal Mairaj) and the Prophet's birthday (Maulid Al-Nabi) are the two biggest holidays. Then you also have the start of Ramadan and Eid al Fitr, which signifies the end of Ramadan. Eid Al-Adha is another important holiday in the Islamic calendar. 

The rest of Dubai holidays like Christmas and New Years day are similar to our holidays in the US. These holidays are only observed in Dubai and not in the rest of the UAE because of Dubai’s heavy expatriate population. 

National Day in Dubai is celebrated on December 2. This day is celebrated to remember the formation of the United Arab Emirates and Dubai's adoption of the AED Dirham.
