Deepavali in 2024 falls on a Thursday. You can make it a long weekend if you take a day's leave on Friday, Nov. 1.

Long weekends aside, three of the public holidays — Hari Raya Puasa (Apr. 10), Labour Day (May. 1), and Vesak Day (May. 22) — fall on a Wednesday.

So, you can either catch a mid-week breather or plan your leave days such that you have a mega-long weekend break.
