Barbados Celebrates 43 Years of Independence Today

43 years ago, Barbados gained independence from Britain (’twas a friendly parting - no war or anything like that. Basically, we said “We think we can take it from here” and they replied “Okay.” And to this day we maintain close ties with them.)

Our National Motto is Pride & Industry and we have been fortunate to have been able to maintain a strong economy and stable democracy with several peaceful changes of government since Independence.

Our National Anthem (that’s just the first verse and chorus being played in the video) and lots of other interesting stuff about Barbados can be found here.

Happy Birthday, Barbados!

Hey thanks, OfferUK.
And now that our Independence celebrations are over, practically everyone’s focus here is on Christmas and all the crazy traffic and shopping that goes with it!

In the words of a well known carol: “It’s the most wonderful time of the year...”

Thanks, TanjaPetro. And congrats to T&T (that’s short for Trinidad and Tobago, for those who might be clueless) for pulling off what from all accounts was a very successful Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

My congratulations on this day. I think it's a great day for the country and for its people. And what do people do on that day?

Congratulations.
I have not been to Barbados but I think it should be a nice place for holiday from all of above descriptions.

All the best,
