Secular holiday : After Sheikh Mujib's declaration of independence, Pakistan's President Yahya Khan outlawed the Awami League and arrested its leaders. Resistance fighters continued to battle the Pakistan army, resulting in nearly ten million refugees fleeing to India. India declared war on Pakistan on December 4, and Pakistan surrendered soon afterwards, on December 16, 1971. Mujib returned to become the first Prime Minister of Bangladesh.


Christmas Day -
Friday December 25, 2020

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.
