Commonwealth Day, celebrated on the second Monday of March throughout the Commonwealth, as its name suggests celebrates the Commonwealth.
Traditionally, in London, Queen Elizabeth II leads a celebration at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day along with the Commonwealth Secretary-General, and the Commonwealth High Commissioners. Her Majesty is the Head of the Commonwealth, and normally reads a speech in honour of the occasion.
The day is not an official holiday in most jurisdictions, although I call on all Commonwealth nations to do so. The day does celebrate the group that binds us together.
So, let’s celebrate Commonwealth Day!
