Martyrs'Day -
Tuesday January 9, 2018

Secular holiday : Commemorates the January 9, 1964 riots over sovereignty of the Panama Canal Zone. The riots erupted after a Panamanian flag was torn down during conflict between Panamanian students and U.S. citizens living in the Panama Canal Zone over the right of the Panamanian flag to be flown alongside the U.S. flag. United States' Army units became involved in suppressing the violence after Canal Zone police were overwhelmed. After three days of fighting, 22 Panamanians and four U.S. citizens were killed.

Christmas Day -
Monday December 25, 2017

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.
