Background Information

Governing Law: Official public holidays in the US Virgin Islands are regulated by 1 V.I. Code Ann. 171(a) of the Virgin Islands Code.  Transfer Day: On March 31, 1917, the United States purchased the Caribbean Islands known as the Danish West Indies from the country of Denmark for the sum of US$25 million. The US Virgin Islands government annually celebrates this transfer of territory ownership in the form of an official holiday known as Transfer Day.  St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John are the 3 main islands that make up the United States Virgin Islands.  Each of the Virgin Islands has its own carnival-type celebration and they are usually local holidays. St. Croix has its Christmas Festival around January 6th. Each celebration includes inter-island participation in parades, floats, flupes, moko jumbles, steel bands, etc. One surprising St. Croix event which locals and visitors enjoy is the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Christiansted held around mid-March.  US Virgin Islands International Codes VI and VIR (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .vi (ICANN national top-level internet domain). Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of US Virgin Islands information and news: Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Washington) (US Virgin Islands central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (US Virgin Islands maps, demographics and economic statistics), and Wikipedia (includes US Virgin Islands commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
