In the UK, the August Bank Holiday is a last hurrah holiday for summer before the onset of colder weather in autumn. But Saint Helena is in the Southern Hemisphere, where the seasons are reversed, and August is generally considered one of the coldest months of the year.

It is traditional to go on picnics or short vacations or other outings on the August Bank Holiday. Workers get a welcome day off, and children get out of school to spend time with their family.
