Netherlands: Recognizing Eid

A research by MarketResponse among 500 people, 18 and older shows the following:

20% the Dutch think that Eid ul-Fitr, the holiday celebrating the end of Ramadan, should become a national holiday. 70% don't care, though about half (45%) support recognizing Eid as a hliday and letting people decide if they want to take it instead of another national holiday.

31% would support recognizing Eid as a national holiday, if it would be an additional vacation day. Only 9% support recognizing it in exchange for another national holiday.

61% would come to a celebration of Eid, if invited.
