Fiji Day is the National Day of Fiji and is celebrated on 10 October. If 10 October falls on a weekend, the holiday may be moved to a weekday. The week leading up to Fiji Day is known as Fiji Week and consists of a series of religious and cultural events that celebrate Fiji’s diversity
Fiji Day marks the anniversary of both Fiji’s cession to the United Kingdom in 1874 and its attainment of independence in 1970. The British took control of the islands as the Colony of Fiji on 10 October 1874. Fiji became an independent sovereign state on 10 October 1970 when its colonial status was removed.
My Birthday falls on the 10th October so what better way to celebrate than to enjoy the festivities of Fiji Day in Fiji.
