  • I agree, this page should be sub-divided by a disambugation page for each antional group. Jfbcubed 21:33, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
  • disagree- sort article covers the small Commonwealth ccountries--Tomtom9041 23:07, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
  • It is probably a good idea to separate the UK and US articles from the Caribbean countries.--Peta 23:54, 7 August 2006 (UTC)
  • I think the Caribbean articles should be kept together as they are related (the Emancipation Days are the same and have the same origin). [[User:Ashlar|ash] 8:15, 15 October 2006 (GMT)

According to BERMUDA PUBLIC HOLIDAYS ACT 1947, Emancipation Day is the Thursday before the first Monday in August. Page 7, http://www.bermudalaws.bm/Laws/Consolidated%20Laws/Public%20Holidays%20Act%201947.pdf The following day is also a public holiday, Somers Day. The two days together are known as "Cup Match". As I don't live in Bermuda, I don't feel comfortable editing the entry. Assuming the contributor is a local, is there something they know that I don't? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 47.54.255.82 (talk) 16:06, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Kwanzaa?[edit]

Why the "see also" link for Kwanzaa? Seems inappropriate. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.211.173.77 (talk) 23:57, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
