The government of Anguilla has released its annual list of the official Anguilla bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Anguilla for the calendar year 2022.

The list of public holidays in Anguilla for the calendar year 2022 lists the December 19 public holiday as "National Heroes and Heroines Day" (previously, it was called "Separation Day"), and the March 2nd birthday of James Ronald Webster is listed as a full national public holiday, whereas until 2010 it was only a school holiday (2010-02-17), once again (2020-12-06, 2020-02-29, 2019-01-24, 2018-01-21, 2017-01-20, 2016-01-22, 2015-01-20, 2014-02-02, 2012-08-25, 2011-11-07, 2010-11-10, 2009-12-04, 2008-12-04 and 2007-11-30).

Additional, one-off public holidays are always a possibility (2018-05-17, 2015-04-23, 2010-02-16 and 2005-02-22), and indeed in 2022, Anguilla will observe a public holiday on Friday, June 3, 2022, for the Celebration of the Platinum Jubilee and Official Birthday of Her Majesty The Queen.

Recall that, late last year (2020-11-12), the UK's culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, announced that an extra Platinum Jubilee public holiday would be declared on Friday, June 3, 2022, to mark Queen Elizabeth's 70th anniversary on the throne.

Since then, a few Commonwealth states and Crown Posessions have joined the UK in declaring a Platinum Jubilee public holiday (2021-12-22, 2021-11-30, 2021-11-05, 2021-10-29, 2021-10-21, 2021-08-28, 2021-08-06 and 2021-07-05).

Note that the list of the official non-working public holidays in Anguilla for the calendar year 2022, contains an error in the date of the Celebration of the Platinum Jubilee and Official Birthday of Her Majesty The Queen public holiday, and therefore we expect a revised list of 2022 public holidays in Anguilla, as happened some past years (2012-04-26 and 2011-02-28).
