The Government of Trinidad and Tobago, through its Communications Minister, Jamal Mohammed, has announced that Friday, May 31, 2013, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago, due to the coincidence of the Feast of Corpus Christi public holiday and the Arrival Day public holiday in 2013.
As per the aforementioned announcement, "The Public Holidays and Festivals Act Chapter 1905 states that where a public holiday falls on a Sunday, or where two public holidays fall on the same day, the next following day that is not a public holiday shall be a public holiday".
Last month (04-Apr-2013), the Government of Trinidad and Tobago had already released an amended official list of 2013, non-working public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago, differing from last year's announcement of the official list of 2012, 2013, and 2014, non-working public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago (04-Jan-2012) by the moving of the 2013 Eid-Ul-Fitr non-working public holiday from September 2013 to August 2013 (though the dates remains TBA).
Minister Mohammed went on to state that "the dates are still to be announced for the public holidays for Divali and Eid-ul-Fitr". Muslim and Hindu public holidays dates which are marked as TBA (to be announced) are traditionally announced at the last-minute (20-Oct-2012, 03-Aug-2012, 05-Mar-2012, 14-Oct-2011, 12-Aug-2011, 10-Oct-2010 and 20-Aug-2010).
