Other provinces of Pakistan will have the winter holidays on almost similar dates. Most of the Pakistani institutions will have holidays in between last week of December and 1st week of January.
As the weather is changing, it was a pending decision to shift winter holidays from December to January but the decision was not finalized. The main objective of winter vacations is to provide a degree of relaxation, comfort, and enjoyment to students in severe cold weather. It is the most enjoyable period for families as they plan short trips and visit northern areas of Pakistan to fully experience the snowy cold weather.
