As an emirate within the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai celebrates the same public holidays with the other emirates. Most public holidays in Dubai are taken from Islamic festivals except the International New Year’s Day and the UAE National Day.
The Islamic festivals use Islamic lunar calendar as the basis, thus the dates of the festivals keep changing from year to year according to Gregorian (Western) calendar. Since the Islamic festivals are determined through moon-sightings, the dates of certain festivals are usually announced adjacent with the actual dates.
