There are a couple important holidays coming up here in Belize: The Battle of St. George’s Caye and Belize Independence Day!
The Battle of St. George’s Caye is celebrated each year on September 10. We spoke about it at length last year. It’s a date forever etched into the history of Belize after British-led forces of local Baymen and slaves defeated an invading Spanish fleet from Mexico.
Belize Independence Day marks the official date in our history where Belize went from being a British Crown Colony to our own independent nation on September 21, 1981 (read more about it on our blog here). This year marks our nation’s 36th birthday.
Should you find yourselves in Belize this September, be sure to have a Belikin with us!
