Discovery Day is a public holiday in the Bahamas.

When Christopher Columbus landed in the New World in 1492, history was made and Columbus Day was created as a public holiday for many cultures. The Bahamian culture celebrates this day and calls it Discovery Day. If National Heroes Day falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it is observed the following Monday and most public facilities schools, post offices, government offices, etc. are closed in its observance. A small ceremony is held in Rawson Square downtown Nassau, in honor of the Bahamian national heroes that are chosen for that year.
