This page features the predictable anniversaries and calendar-days for the year, not all of which are widely celebrated on St Helena. Some events cannot be predicted (e.g. the Queen’s Birthday Public Holiday{1}) and are therefore omitted. Many of these dates vary from year to year{2} and thus require calculation{3} (if you spot an error please contact us). Some American holidays are included, celebrated particularly by Saints that have worked on Ascension Island.
