Following the recent passage, in both the Bermuda Senate and the Bermuda House of Assembly, of the "Public Holidays Amendment Act 2017", which amends the rules that determine the date on which Bermuda Day public holiday is celebrated, the government of Bermuda has issued a revised list of public holidays in Bermuda for the years 2018-2019-2020-2021.
The aforementioned "Public Holidays Amendment Act 2017" is the culmination of repeated attempts by Michael Weeks, who, when he was Bermuda's Shadow Minister of Economic Development, had already introduced the "Public Holidays Amendment Act 2014" (30-Jun-2014), and more recently (15-May-2017), when, as Bermuda's Shadow Minister of Community, Youth and Sports, he once again introduced a "Public Holidays Amendment Act" in the House of Assembly for Bermuda Day to fall on the Friday before the last Monday of May each year, instead of the fixed date of May 24.
Then, last month (04-Nov-2017), Bermuda's Minister of Social Development and Sport, Zane DeSilva, announced that, henceforth, the annual Bermuda Day public holiday would be observed on the last Friday of May, instead of the hitherto fixed date of May 24, and later that same month (19-Nov-2017), the House of Assembly of Bermuda passed the Bill to change the date on which Bermuda Day public holiday is celebrated to the last Friday in May, followed, earlier this month (08-Dec-2017) by Bermuda's Senate.
