Sint Maarten's Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Affairs, Silveria Jacobs, has officially declared Monday, July 2, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday in conjunction with the recently-voted, July 1st, annual Emancipation Day non-working public holiday.
Although Sint Maarten public holidays that fall on a weekend do not usually get a compensatory day in lieu public holidays on the following Monday, in this case an exception was made as July 1st finally became an annual public holiday in Sint Maarten, after many tribulations (2012-06-06, 2012-06-01, 2012-05-11, 2012-03-19, 2011-06-29, 2011-06-18, 2011-06-03, and 2011-04-15), only to fall on a Sunday (It's a day when we will be celebrating Emancipation Day for the first time).
