National Day in Bahrain

Post  Rawan Fouad Asad on Mon Dec 10, 2007 6:45 pm

National Day in Bahrain
To mark the nationhood of a country, a particular day is earmarked. This day is celebrated throughout the country as the 'National Day'. National day is usually a holiday in the respective nation. The national day of a state or territory is often the commemoration of achieving independence. Though most countries have a single national day, some have more than one, for instance Pakistan. Most countries have a fixed national day but some do not. An example here is Jamaica, which celebrates its national day on the first Monday in August. National Day in Bahrain is celebrated on the 16th of December.
Bahrain got its independence on the 16th of December, 1971. For a long time the country was under British imperialism. This day in the year of 1971 saw Bahrain emerge as an independent nation. This happy event is celebrated widely every year as the National Day in Bahrain. Initially the national day was celebrated on the 16th of December alone but now it is being celebrated on two consecutive days. The 16th and the 17th of December see people go on a celebration mode across the country. National day has been extended to a two day holiday since 1999. This change is courtesy his majesty King Hamad.

The ai-Khalifa family invaded Bahrain and captured the island nation from their base in neighboring Qatar. To keep the country out of Persian control Bahrain entered into a treaty with the United Kingdoms. Eventually Bahrain became a British protectorate. The huge oil resources induced the British to expand their base in the country. British influence steadfastly grew with time culminating with appointment of Charles Belgrave as an advisor. Post World War 2, there was a wide spread rebellion against the British through out Arab that caught on in Arab. There were riots throughout the country and eventually on the 15th of December, 1971, Britishers withdrew from the country. Since then the 16th day of December has been celebrated as the National Day in Bahrain, until 1999 when the celebration was extended for one more day. The National Day in Bahrain is one of the most widely celebrated events.
