Opening days are not always what people re accustomed to.
is the closing day for museums or anything similar to it (this includes the citadel in Aleppo)
It's the general "holy" day for Muslims, and basically most shops and all offices close down for the day
In Christian towns it's the "holy" day when all things close down. All over the country many goldsmiths (mostly Christians) close down too.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
