    Joining of sentences

    It is a public holiday tomorrow. I need not go to work.

    If the above sentences are joined, can I say?

    It being a public holiday tomorrow, I need not go to work.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, I think it si right.
    Other variations could be:

    Tomorrow being a public holiday, I will/ need not go to work.

    Since it is a public holiday tomorrow, I will/ need not go to work.

    Tomorrow is a public holiday, so I will/ need not go to work.

    Tomorrow being a public holiday, I am not going to work.

    Owing to a public holiday tomorrow, I will / need not go to work.

    Tomorrow I am not going/ shall not go to work because/ since it is a public holiday.

    and many more...
