Officials release dates for 2024 public holidays

| 14/12/2023 | 8 Comments

(CNS): Cayman will be back to just eleven public holidays next year as there are no special royal events to add to the list. Beginning with New Year’s Day on Monday, 1 January, through to Thursday, 26 December (Boxing Day), this year’s list includes Emancipation Day on 6 May, which has replaced the former Discovery Day and is not an additional holiday. Meanwhile, the date of the King’s Official Birthday is still to be confirmed but it is expected to be on 17 June.

This means that most workers will enjoy at least one day off per month between January and July before the more than three-month gap until Remembrance Day.

See the full list below:

  • Monday, 1 January – New Year’s Day
  • Monday, 22 January – National Heroes Day
  • Wednesday, 14 February – Ash Wednesday
  • Friday, 29 March – Good Friday
  • Monday, 1 April – Easter Monday
  • Monday, 6 May – Emancipation Day
  • Monday, 17 June – King’s Birthday (unconfirmed)
  • Monday, 1 July – Constitution Day
  • Monday, 11 November – Remembrance Day
  • Wednesday, 25 December – Christmas Day
  • Thursday, 26 December – Boxing Day.

    Emancipation Day will surely bring everyone together in peace and harmony.

    I’m a white Scotsman
    Am I eligible for this holiday?

      You chose to come to a location which has deemed it relevant so maybe you can attempt to understand the reason it exists rather than mock it.
      The same as most people who move to other countries and observe their holidays.

      Sure Mr Scotchman, you can regale us with stories your great grand parents would have told you about the slaves they kept in Scotland.

    Instead of $1,500 Civil Service bonus topped with increase of $500 Duty-Free allowance for Miami Christmas Shopping,
    why don’t we make “Cayman Thanksgiving” the 1st Monday of December to promote local Cayman shopping.

    • Round & round in circles we go says:

      Yes, provided Govt. Depts. like Lands Survey don’t close for 1/2 day to celebrate American Thanksgiving as well.
