Bahamas Public Holiday October 12

Source: The Government of the Bahamas (Nassau)
Posted: Wednesday, October 10, 2012

The Bahamas' Cabinet Office has issued a communique advising the general public that Friday, October 12, 2012, would be observed as the upcoming non-working public holiday corresponding to the 2012 Discovery Day.

As per the list of official Bahamas public holidays for the calendar year 2012, released earlier this year (2012-01-16), the name Discovery Day, remains unchanged, stemming from the government's reluctance (2009-10-14 and 2007-09-28) to gazette the National Heroes Bill and the National Honours Bill, which were approved by both houses of Parliament, 5 years ago (2007-03-30).
