Trinidad and Tobago Divali Public Holiday October 29
 
(Posted on Wednesday, October 5, 2016)

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago has announced that, as per an official appointment by Trinidad and Tobago President, Anthony Carmona, Saturday, October 29, 2016, had been declared as a non-working public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago, on account of the upcoming Divali annual public holiday of Trinidad and Tobago in 2016.

As per the aforementioned announcement, "His Excellency Anthony Thomas Aquinas Carmona ORTT, SC President of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago has appointed Saturday 29th October, 2016 as the date of the public holiday in celebration of the festival of Divali".

The Trinidad Minister of Pubic Administration and Communications, Maxie Cuffie, went on to confirm that, as there had been no day in lieu public holiday for the recent, September 24, Republic Day public holiday falling on a Saturday, there would not be a day in lieu public holiday either for the upcoming Divali public holiday falling on a Saturday.

The Divali public holiday of Trinidad and Tobago had been included in the official list of Trinidad and Tobago bank holidays and of non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2016, which was released by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago earlier this year (10-Jan-2016).

But, as usual (09-Nov-2014 and 04-Jan-2012), the aforementioned announcement of the official list of Trinidad and Tobago bank holidays and of non-working public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago for the calendar year 2016, marked the Muslim and Hindu public holidays dates as TBA (to be announced) as these are traditionally announced at the last-minute (22-Jun-2016, 27-Jun-2015, 10-Jul-2014, 16-Oct-2013, 30-Jul-2013, 26-Jul-2013, 04-Apr-2013, 14-Oct-2011, 12-Aug-2011, 10-Oct-2010 and 20-Aug-2010).
