The official dates of public holidays for 2016 have been confirmed by the deputy governor’s office.
The list consists of 10 confirmed holidays, although there will be 11 public holidays next year. One date that has yet to be confirmed is the official Queen’s Birthday.
Queen Elizabeth II celebrates two birthdays each year: her actual birthday on April 21 and her official birthday, which is usually marked on a Saturday in June. The queen turns 90 next year.
Changes in next year’s schedule of public holidays in the Cayman Islands include Christmas Day, which will be observed on Monday, Dec. 26, as Dec. 25 falls on a Sunday, and Boxing Day, which will be observed on Tuesday, Dec. 27, since Dec. 26 will be the Christmas Day holiday.
