If you see large crowds of youth running around TCI today, don’t worry – it’s National Youth Day!
Every year on the last Friday in September the Turks and Caicos Islands celebrate National Youth Day, this year on September 29. It’s one of half a dozen public holidays in the second half of the year in the TCI, followed by:
- National Heritage Day (October 9) – honoring the natural, historical, and cultural heritage of the Turks and Caicos Islands the second Monday of each October.
- National Day of Thanksgiving (November 24) – In 2014 Prime Minister of the Turks and Caicos Islands Rufus Ewing declared the fourth Friday in November to be National Day of Thanksgiving.
- Christmas Day (December 25)
- Boxing Day (December 25)
All this talk about holidays just makes you want to go on a vacation, doesn’t it? 😉
