The Christian doctrine of the Ascension.

An official holiday. Ascension Day is the celebration of Christ ascending into heaven after His death, burial and resurrection. Ascension Day is observed primarily in Catholic and Anglican churches around the island.

Bear in mind:
Ascension Day in Aruba is an official Aruban holiday, so you can expect shops, petrol stations and supermarkets to close early or remain closed the entire day.
