Fiji celebrates its public holiday called Fiji Day every 10 October to commemorates the signing of the Deed of Cession in 1874, which initiated a 96-year long process of gradual granting of independence from British rule. On the same day, 10 October, in 1970, Fiji finally became a fully independent nation.
