    Christmas Day

    -
    Sunday December 25, 2022
    Catholic or protestant : Since pre-historic times in Europe, festivities (bonfires, offrerings) were marking the beginning of longer hours of daylight with fires and ritual. The Roman festival of Saturnalia lasted several days in December (gambling and offerings). Germanic tribes also celebrated mid-winter (drinking and rituals). The Bulgarian (with Koleduvane) and the Polish (with Gwiazdka) perpetuate this tradition. Jesus of Nazareth was probably born in springtime (Reformists favour autumn). But in the 4th century, December 25th was chosen for the celebration of his birth by Pope Julius I (Bishop Liberus is also mentioned in 354 A.D.). Thus, a Christian element was introduced in the long-established mid-winter festivals. Before 1582, the Papal States and other Italian city states celebrated New Year’s Day on Christmas Day.

    Freedom Day (Jum il-Helsien)

    -
    Friday March 31, 2023
    Secular holiday : Malta declared independence from the British in September 1964, ending a rule of 164 years (previous to that, France ruled Malta 1798-1800). Then, Malta became a Republic in 1974. Jum il-Helsien means Freedom Day and marks the day when all foreign forces left the island. Until that day, the British still used Malta as a naval and army base. This was quickly followed by the announcement of neutrality.
