Repentance Day is generally celebrated by prayer ceremonies across the country since its establishment by Prime Minister Peter O'Neill shortly after he became PM in 2011.
 
It was made a public holiday at the request of a group of churches, which had initially submitted the request to O'Neill's predecessor, Sam Abal.
