Monday November 5, 2018

Secular holiday : The USA assisted Panama in separation from Colombia, but the latter didn't want to recognize independence of Panama. Officially Panama declared its independence on November 3, 1903, but the battle didn't finish. The government of Colombia ordered the Army to march on Panama City. On November 3, 1903 the Panamanians had to stay their grounds in the city of Colon, that is a strategic place near the Caribbean Sea. The Panamanian officials did their best to persuade the Army of Colombia not to participate in the process of separation of Panama from Colombia. The negotiations were successful and this day became a landmark in the history of Panama. [anydayguide.com]

Christmas Day -
Tuesday December 25, 2018

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.
