Dessalines Birthday

-
Tuesday September 20, 2022
Secular holiday : Originally said to be born in West Africa, Jean-Jacques Dessalines would have been born around 1758 in Guinea Conakry, however to locate him in the bowels of Haiti which had welcomed him as a slave, some historians claim that he was born on the Vye Kay dwelling of the commune of Grande Rivère du Nord on September 20, 1758 from 2021

Monday October 17, 2022

Christmas Day

-
Sunday December 25, 2022
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.
