Remembrance Day in the Cayman Islands is marked on the second Monday of every November. The holiday is on a Monday in Cayman Islands, while many countries mark it on 11 November regardless of the day of the week.
|2019||11 Nov||Mon||Remembrance Day|

Remembrance Day was originally held every 11 November as “Armistice Day” to commemorate the end of World War I. It is still observed in British Commonwealth nations, including Cayman Islands, to honour the veterans (now all deceased) who fought in World War I.
On Remembrance Day in Cayman Islands, there will be an official wreath-laying ceremony presided over by government officials, and public recognition of military veterans both living and dead.
While Remembrance Day is not so widely and vigorously celebrated these days as in years gone by, it is still observed. Out of respect for the heroes of the past and out of sheer tradition, this World War I holiday lingers on despite there being no living World War I veterans.
