Other Public Holidays include:
March 5th -Lavity Stoutt's Birthday(not a Caribbean beer brand but the longest serving Chief Minister)
March 12th-Commonwealth Day (the day the we got the "B" in BVI)
Second Saturday in June-Sovereign's Birthday(Long live the Queen!!!)
July 1st-Territory Day (the day the Queen decided that we were too far away to micromanage)
1st Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday in August-Festival!(Potentially my favorite, with 5 days of Partying total)
December 26th-Boxing Day!(The day we let "the help" celebrate with their families after cleaning up after us on the "real" Holiday, and maybe give the Postman a little something)
And I almost forgot about the monthly Full Moon Parties at assorted and sordid locales around the Island. Apparently hallucinogenic mushrooms are legal here, and are the focus of these all-night affairs.
Of course we get to keep Christmas, New Years Day, and all the various, and confusing Easter-related days. As for Halloween? Well, I don't really know what to expect, but will try to keep everyone updated.
