This Year

This page features the predictable anniversaries and calendar-days for the year which are relevant to St Helena, though not all are necessarily widely celebrated here. Some events cannot be predicted and are therefore omitted. Some UK holidays are only marked here by the British ex-pats. Some American holidays are included, celebrated particularly by Saints that have worked on Ascension Island. Many of these dates vary from year to year (Easter, Remembrance Sunday, etc.) and thus require calculation (if you spot an error please contact us{1}).
