Holidays in Anguilla are predominantly religious holidays, with a number of additional national holidays. The most important holiday in the Territory is Separation day, which celebrates the separation of the island from Saint Kitts and Nevis.
Where fixed date holidays (such as Christmas Day and Boxing Day) fall on a weekend, the holiday is taken in lieu on the next succeeding working day.
^Easter is observed in the Territory according to Western Christian traditions, ie. (in summary), on the first Sunday following the first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after 21 March (the day of the ecclesiastical vernal equinox).
