Independence Day is a holiday in New Eiffel celebrating it's independence. It is celebrated annually on 31 December, and sometimes on 2 January to avoid New Year's Day and New Year's Eve.

Oddly Independence Day is not an official public holiday in New Eiffel. The most similar fixed public holiday in New Eiffel to Independence Day would be New Eiffel Unity Day celebrated on 11 August, which celebrates the reunification of New Eiffel, when a principality was established.

Despite not being an official fixed public holiday, it continues to be an important event for New Eiffelish people, and the Prince, who gives a speech celebrating New Eiffel's achievements for the year on every Independence Day.

Celebrations

Social gathering are common. Occasionally, some New Eiffelic people also host concerts with live music and karaoke. There are also sometimes fireworks.

The Prince normally gives his speech near the end of the social gatherings, or on a stage at the end of the concert.
