We Have our First Visitor in Town!
So we’ll catch up with you all in a week!
We will also be celebrating Belize’s Independence Day again this year. Here is something you may not have known:
Belize celebrates its 42nd year of independence on September 21, 2023.
It transitioned from a British colony to a sovereign nation on September 21, 1981.
Every year, Belize has a contest for the Independence Day theme; 2023's is "Hope ignited, hands united, vision renewed: Belize@42!"
September is dubbed the “Patriotic Month” in Belize.
On September 10, Belizeans commemorated The Battle of St. George's Caye Day, marking the 1798 victory over the Spanish fleet.
This battle made Belize Central America’s only English-speaking country.
During September, Belizeans worldwide return home, streets are adorned in red, white, and blue, and the country is alive with festivities.
