Bermuda Parliament Restores June Public Holiday

Bermuda's House of Assembly passed the Public Holidays Amendment (No. 2) Act 2009 in its third and final reading, thus officializing the move of the National Heroes' Day public holiday from October to June.

The Heroes' Day public holiday was established in 2007 as a replacement for Bermuda Day (19-Sep-2007), but faced with public furor, the government created a specific October date for the new Heroes' Day public holiday, starting in 2008, while cancelling the June Queen's birthday public holiday (16-Mar-2008).

Faced again with resistance to a month of June without a public holiday, the government recently announced that it would move the National Heroes' Day public holiday to the month of June (09-May-2009).

Speaking to the press after the vote, Bermuda's Cultural Affairs Minister, Dale Butler, announced that although the first occurrence of the National Heroes' Day public holiday, in 2008, was named after Dame Lois Browne-Evans (10-Apr-2008), the government would probably not name it after anyone in particular this year.
