Background Information

Governing Law: The official public holidays in Grenada are regulated by the Bank Holidays Act which was amended after the 1979 revolution by the People's Law No. 37: Bank Holidays (Amendment) Act 1979 (removal of Queen's birthday from the public holidays list) and after the US invasion by the Bank Holidays (Government Gazette, 1988-05-20, Vol. 106, No. 23, Ac, p. 127-128).  Carnival Tuesday: Officially, Carnival Tuesday is not one of Grenada's official public holidays (as listed on the official Government of Grenada website). However, any attempt at conducting business on that day is doomed to dismal failure.  Christmas Eve: Shopping malls and most stores remain open late into the evening on Christmas Eve (December 24).  Grenada International Codes GD and GRD (2 and 3-letter ISO3166 codes) and .gd (ICANN national top-level internet domain). • Other Sources of Information The following specialized websites are also a good source of Grenada information and news: Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (Grenada central bank), UnitedHealthcare Global (security-related world events: terrorist threats, political strife, strikes, criminal activity, aviation incidents and health outbreaks), CIA World Factbook (Grenada maps, demographics and economic statistics), the IFES (information covering upcoming elections, referenda, electoral structures and voter participation in Grenada), and Wikipedia (includes Grenada commemorative dates that are not necessarily public holidays).
