January 10th is celebrated as such in the Falkland Islands although it is not an official public holiday.
I don't know why this date was chosen.
I do know Lady Thatcher turned down an invitation for the 20th anniversary of the Falklands beause 86-year old Denis was too frail to make the 18-hour flight and she wouldn't leave him.

In the Falkland Islands, Margaret Thatcher Day is celebrated as a public holiday every 10 January, commemorating her visit on this date in 1983, seven months after the military victory; the decision was taken by the Falklands Islands legislature in 1992.
