The government of Aruba has released the official list of non-working public holidays in Aruba for the upcoming calendar year 2014.

Beginning in 2014, Aruba will stop observing a public holiday on April 30, to mark Queen Juliana's Birthday, for a new King's Birthday public holiday on April 27, as did the Netherlands (2013-01-30) and Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba (2013-09-29).

Interestingly, April 27 falls on a Sunday in 2014, so we may expect that a day in lieu public holiday will be declared on Saturday, April 26, 2014, as Aruba followed the Netherlands' handling of the cases when the Queen's Birthday public holiday falls on a Sunday, in 2006 the last time it happened (2006-04-28), although the previous time this happened, in 2000, both the Netherlands Antilles and Aruba refused to move the public holiday from Sunday, April 30th.
