Public Holiday: National Heroes and Heroines Day

December 19, 2017

Anguilla Public Holidays

National Heroes and Heroines Day is a public holiday in Anguilla which falls on December 19 annually. It was previously known as Separation Day.

Separation Day was originally established to celebrate the anniversary of political separation of Anguilla from the territory of Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla in 1980.

The Government of Anguilla eventually made the decision to rename the holiday to National Heroes and Heroines Day. The holiday is dedicated to all heroes and heroines who played an important role in the history of Anguilla and made significant sacrifices for its prosperity.
