Workers can look forward to New Year’s Day on Wednesday 1 January butthey will be back on the job the next day, with Thursday 2 January a normal working day. The next break isn’t too far away, however, as on Monday 27 January Cayman celebrates its National Heroes Day. Ash Wednesday will be on 5 March and the Easter break will be late next year, with Good Friday falling on 18 April followed by Easter Monday on 21 April. The next break will be on 19 May, when Cayman celebrates Discovery Day, and the Queen’s Birthday holiday is expected to be some four weeks later on Monday 16 June.

Constitution Day takes place as always on Monday 7 July, but then workers have to wait for their next official long weekend until November, when the islands marks Remembrance Day on Monday 10 November. Finally, in December Christmas Day and Boxing Day fall on a Thursday and Friday next year, transitioning into a long festive weekend.

    I want a referendum next September, as to whether or not we need a holiday in September.

    Real Talk! Can we please get something between July 1 to Nov?

    How about a Labor Day? Give all of us who have labored so hard in our respective lines of work a day to rest from laboring 🙂

    Why don't we cram most of the holidays into the first 7 months of the year?  I mean who needs a holiday between early July and mid November?
