Happy Republic Day- Trinis have another Public Holiday?!

Happy Republic Day- Trinis have another Public Holiday?!

Trindad and Tobago is known to have most public holidays and again we have another one.

Brief History:
Trinidad and Tobago became a Republic on August 1st, 1976. The event is celebrated as a public holiday on September 24th because this is the date when the first Parliament met under the new Republican Constitution. The date was removed from the official calendar of holidays from 1999 to 2001 to make way for the Spiritual Baptist (Shouter) Liberation Day which is celebrated on March 30th. The Republic Day holiday was reinstated in 2002.

We are so happy it was reinstated. Come to Trinidad & Tobago (wink wink)
