End-of-April Global Holidays

The previous post (↗) focuses on Anzac Day in AUSTRALIA and NEW ZEALAND, but it is not the only national or territorial holiday occurring at the end of April. Today, TANZANIA celebrates the 1964 merger of Tanganyika and Zanzibar — an occasion aptly known as Union Day. Tomorrow, April 27th is overflowing with celebrations! The NETHERLANDS, CuraƧao, and Sint Maarten will celebrate King's Day, which was established 1967. SOUTH AFRICA will celebrate the 23rd anniversary of Freedom Day (established 1994). Tomorrow, Independence Days will be celebrated in two West African countries — SIERRA LEONE (since 1961) and TOGO (since 1960). Finally, Arbor Day is celebrated this month in multiple places around the world. The UNITED STATES and dozens of other countries dedicate the last Friday of April — or another day in April or in another month — to planting hundreds and thousands of native trees to help remove carbon dioxide from the air and provide other ecological benefits to Earth's inhabitants.
