ROSEWOOD – Überstadt’s culture minister recommended Saturday that the kingdom make several changes to its official holiday roster. They will later be confirmed by a parliamentary vote.
One pending change is removing a day celebrating Prince Roy of Sealand’s birthday. King Adam first made it a holiday to honor the man who inspired him to found Überstadt, but he and Minister for Culture the Baroness Rosewood agreed that such an observation was no longer suitable. “We are driven by ourselves, not some outside inspiration,” the king said.
The existing observation called the Day of Fire is to be moved from the end of July to the beginning of August. It originally marked the day when Edmount Island, Überstadt’s first territory, suffered a major wildfire in 2009. The new date will be anniversary of the fire’s defeat, and will become the only holiday in August.
New holidays include some already celebrated culturally by most or all citizens, including Christmas and Easter. One major new addition to the summer calendar will be Navy Day in late June, honoring His Majesty’s Überstadti Navy.
