Chatham Islands Anniversary Day, 3 December 2007 - other parts of the country remember the founding of the provinces (and/or their abolition in 1876), but the Chathams were never part of a province. Then when all the other counties were abolished in 1989 the CIC held on, finally succumbing to progress 6 years later when it became a Territory.
