The press office of the Government of Belize has sent out a press release, signed by the Minister of Home Affairs and New Growth Industries, Kareem Musa, announcing a revised version of the previously-released list of 2022 Belize public holidays.

The initial list of annual non-working public holidays in Belize for the calendar year 2022, as announced earlier this month (2021-11-03), departs from the First and Second Schedule to the Holidays Act, Chapter 289 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition 2000-2003, as a consequence of last year's amendments to the Belize public holidays legislation (2021-06-10, 2021-01-11, 2021-01-09 and 2020-12-31), most notably by the addition of a somewhat surprising El Dia de la Raza public holiday on Monday, October 10, 2022.

Today's updated list of 2022 Belize public holidays replaces the El Dia de la Raza public holiday with one named Indigenous Peoples' Resistance Holiday.
