Happy St. George's Caye Day!

Happy St. George’s Caye Day!

Every year on September 10th Belize celebrates the anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye, the day when the Baymen defeated the Spaniards in a fight to ascertain claim for present day Belize.

Belizeans from every corner of the country dress in patriotic colors of red, blue and white and sing the popular song “The Tenth Day of September”:

The tenth day of September
It was the 10th day of September In ninety-eight Anno Domini
when our fore-fathers won the
glorious fight at Old St. George’s Caye

Then hail them – cheer them.
Let our grateful loyal hearts not fail them,
as we march and sing and shout in merry glee
The Battle of St. George’s Caye.
Hip! Hip! Hurrah. Hip! Hip! Hurrah.
