The people of Antigua and Barbuda commemorates the independence of Antigua and Barbuda on 1st November every year. Antigua and Barbuda got independence from the United Kingdom in 1981.
Antigua and Barbuda is a small island country between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Moreover, it consists two major islands and a number of small islands. Christopher Columbus was the first person to sight these islands in 1493. Initially, English colonized it in 1632.
In 1816, the colony was divided into two parts (with Montserrat, Barbuda, and Antigua as one colony). Eventually, it reformed in 1833 and existed until 1958.
After the Second World War, the colonial system began to decline. In 1958, Antigua and Barbuda joined the West Indies Federation. The federation collapsed in 1962. Then, Antigua and Barbuda became a separate colony. In 1967, the islands became a state with the UK.
On November 1, 1981, Antigua and Barbuda became a fully independent state. The independence day is now celebrated as a national holiday. The celebrations consist of a week of celebration, competitions, parades, and food fairs. Below, I have covered the Comparing Script for the Independence Day of Antigua and Barbuda.
