Definition

A golden jubilee is a celebration of an event after 50 years. I think India borrowed this from the British. However we celebrate various golden jubilee's (that may not be 50 years old) A golden jubilee is usually held on a games field, a large multi-purpose hall and generally involves cultural programs, dances, speeches ,loud music, bad microphones and garlanding of well known figures - Princy, governor etc .

Usage

The children are allowed to wear fancy dress for the golden jubilee.
