One thing that service class in Pakistan is concerned with is the number of public holidays it will get in a year. People enjoy their holidays with lots of fun and recreation with family and friends. With 2019 just round the corner, people are busy counting the number of public holidays they will get in the New Year. Eid-ul-fitr and Eid-ul-Adha account for maximum number of consecutive holidays. But there are many other festivals and events that are recognized as public holidays in Pakistan.
It has to be kept in mind that the dates of religious festivals in Pakistan remain tentative as they are observed on the basis of Islamic calendar. Rest of the public holidays in Pakistan fall on fixed dates according to the Gregorian calendar. These include holidays like Kashmir Day, Pakistan Day, Quaid-i-Azam Day, International Labor Day, and so on.
