The press office of the Government of Belize has revised its official list of 2009 public holidays.

In this revision, in contrast to last June's announcement (2008-06-30), and as was done in 2008 (2008-01-04), the government of Belize has decided to avail itself of the discretionary powers of article 9 of the Belize Holidays Act (2000, revised 2003) to declare a day in lieu public holiday on Monday, December 28, 2009, to compensate for the fact that December 26 is a Saturday in 2009.

Such revisions of the officially announced list of public holidays have occurred in the past in Belize (2006-07-05 and 2007-10-01).
