Qataris given “rest of the year off” for Eid

DOHA: Qatari nationals working in the public sector were celebrating this morning after it was announced that they were to be given the rest of the year off to celebrate Eid.

“Well, with summer going on until September and thinking about Eid al-Adha later, we just thought f*** it, let’s call it quits for the year and reconvene in January,” said a spokesman.

    Nice joke, I know for a fact that they get exactly 11 days for eid al fatar
    Still much, yeah, but they get only two of them each year, nothing else
    And its given to anyone who works in qatar, not just qataris
