Nigerian national holiday

As we approach the U.S. national holiday on 4 July, here's a reminder of another national holiday.

Nigeria celebrates the first of October as Independence Day (from United Kingdom, 1960) as a national day and, since the return of democracy in 1999, celebrates Democracy Day on the 29th of May.

There is no work or school on Independence Day. There are special ceremonies at parade grounds that are open to the public.
