Qatar’s Emir has declared the second Tuesday of February each year to be National Sports Day.

During the official paid national holiday, government ministries and private sector organizations must organize “a wide range of sports activities” for different age groups.

The first National Sports Day falls on – you guessed it – Valentine’s Day.

Enjoy it with a brisk walk on the Corniche, all!
