The press office of the Government of Belize has announced the official list of annual non-working public holidays in Belize for the upcoming calendar year 2014.
The aforementioned list of annual non-working public holidays in Belize for the upcoming calendar year 2014, is in line with the First and Second Schedule to the Holidays Act, Chapter 289 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition 2000-2003.
In the aforementioned official list of public holidays in Belize for the calendar year 2014, a few of the fixed-date public holidays that will fall on a Saturday in 2014 have, once again (2012-11-15), been moved to the following Monday. Under article 9 of the Belize Holidays Act (2000, revised 2003), the government of Belize has discretionary powers to declare a day in lieu public holiday, if any fixed-date public holiday falls on a Saturday. Historically, the government of Belize has chosen to use these discretionary powers on and off over the years (2008-06-30, 2008-01-04 and 2002-08-29), without any obvious pattern being discernible.
