Sudan celebrates Unity Day annually every 3rd of March. It is a celebration of peace and unity, particularly the North and parts of South which suffered heavy strife during the civil war. The two-decade war between North and South Sudan ended in 2005, ultimately forming a unity government. Sudan celebrates Unity Day with public cultural shows, parades, and celebratory events. Public and private companies including students from various schools participate in cultural shows and parades in the street which commemorates the unity of the entire region and the preservation of peace and fuelling progress. Since Unity Day is a national holiday, government offices do not operate and while some private offices may choose to close. So we want to wish the people of Sudan a blessed Unity Day!
