* The holiday falls on Sunday; observation of the holiday may be on the following Monday (and observed by the U.S. Mission in Burundi) contingent on a formal announcement by the Government of Burundi, which often comes at the last moment.

**Eid - El - Adha is a festival that celebrates the end of the pilgrimage to Mecca. The holiday will depend on the sighting of the moon and therefore the U.S. Mission in Burundi will close on the working day the holiday falls on.
