Guyana 2017 Deepavali Public Holiday

The government of Guyana's Minister Of Public Security, Khemraj Ramjattan, has announced that the government of Guyana had gazetted Wednesday, October 18, 2017, as the date of the upcoming Deepavali non-working public holiday in Guyana.

Although last-minute announcements of the date of the Youmun Nabi public holiday are a staple of Guyana life (20-Dec-2015, 21-Jan-2013, 01-Feb-2012, 14-Feb-2011, 18-Feb-2010, 01-Mar-2009, 22-Mar-2007, 01-Apr-2006 and 12-Apr-2005), announcements for the date of the Deepavali non-working public holiday are less frequent (16-Oct-2016, 19-Oct-2015 and 22-Oct-2011).

Note that Guyana usually uses the Southern Indian Deepavali calculation method to determine the date of the Deepavali non-working public holiday, as do most of the world's countries in which Deepavali is an official non-working public holiday, and this is the case this year, after 3 years in a row (16-Oct-2016, 19-Oct-2015 and 07-Nov-2014) when the initially released list of non-working 2017 public holidays in Guyana had a date for Deepavali based on the northern Indian calculation method, on Asvina Amavasya during extended Pradosha (22-Nov-2015).
