Saudi Arabia Celebrates its 85th National Day on Wednesday 23 rd September 2015. This year the National day happens to coincide with the beginning of Hajj, meaning there will be no official celebrations until later on in the week with the upcoming Eid Al Adha holiday. Fireworks and most larger festivities have been cancelled this year due to the current war in Yemen.
