Diamond Jubilee: the Queen has been in power for 60 years.

Silver / golden / diamond anniversaries: when people are married for 25, 50 and 60 years respectively.

Bank Holiday: a weekday which is a State holiday. (Most people do not work.) Monday and Tuesday (4th and 5th) are Bank Holidays so that everyone can celebrate the Jubilee.
