The Sint Maarten Labour Department has released the official list of the Sint Maarten non-working public holidays dates for 2013.

The aforementioned list of Sint Maarten public holiday dates for 2013 finally includes the July 1st Emancipation Day non-working public holiday whose declaration was unanimously approved legislation by The Parliament of Sint Maarten, last year (2012-06-06 and 2012-06-29).

Apparently, Sint Maarten does not plan to follow the Netherlands which recently (2013-01-30) changed its Queen's Birthday public holiday on April 30 to the King's Birthday on April 27.

This makes sense as the current Queen's Birthday public holiday on April 30 is part of a 3-day annual public holidays period starting with Carnival Day on April 29 and ending with May 1st.
