    Secular holiday : The granting of the 1875 Constitution, which was a mixture of Tongan, Christian and Western values, finally put in place a new social order, thereby ending an era of major historical conflicts, brought about by Civil War which had subjected Tonga to years of political turmoil. This Constitution was ahead of its time, especially so in terms of accommodating many of the basic tenets of Western democracy.

    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.
