Garifuna Settlement Day
Garifuna Settlement Day honors the heritage of the Garifuna people, a unique ethnic group in the Caribbean and Central America. In 1943, Garafuna Settlement Day was declared a holiday in the southern districts of Belize, and it is now celebrated throughout the country. There are long sessions of traditional drumming and dancing, and Garifuna crafts and food are sold and displayed. Events to raise awareness and appreciation of Garifuna culture are common, including special days to dress in traditional clothing, a Miss Garifuna Belize beauty pageant, parades, and rallies.

William Ashley "Billy" Sunday (1862)
Sunday was the most popular American evangelist of the World War I era, drawing an estimated 100 million people to his revival meetings. Preaching was a second career for him. Before undergoing a religious conversion, he had been a professional baseball player. A flamboyant fundamentalist whose sermons reflected the social upheaval of the transition from a rural to an urban society, Sunday advocated a strict morality and promoted Prohibition.

Prestige Oil Spill (2002)
On Nov. 13, 2002, the Prestige oil tanker suffered damage in a storm and began leaking oil. Denied entry to ports in Spain, France, and Portugal, the stricken vessel was kept at sea for nearly a week before it broke apart and sank about 150 mi (250 km) from the Spanish coast. The resulting oil spill, the worst environmental disaster in Spain's history, fouled much of the Galician coastline as well as parts of the French coast.
