Bahamas 2016 Public Holidays Announced

The Government of the Bahamas has released its annual official list of the non-working public holidays in the Bahamas, for the calendar year 2016.

After years when this was not the case (21-Jan-2013, 16-Jan-2012 and 11-Jan-2011), the aforementioned official list of the Bahamas non-working public holidays for the calendar year 2016, now, as was the case more recently (29-Dec-2014 and 10-Dec-2013), uses the public holiday name National Heroes' Day instead of Discovery Day, as per the provisions of the National Heroes Bill and the National Honours Bill, which were approved by both houses of Parliament, almost a decade ago (30-Mar-2007).

It also lists the, recently declared (03-Jan-2014, 11-Oct-2013, 06-May-2013, 02-May-2013 and 09-Jan-2013), Majority Rule Day new annual public holiday in the Bahamas.

Note that there are quite a few errors in the list of the non-working public holidays in the Bahamas, for the calendar year 2016, as it currently appears online on the Official Website of the Government of The Bahamas.
