While the US is off for a President’s Day today, many Canadians are off for a holiday as well.
Family Day is celebrated in the provinces of Alberta, Ontario and Saskatchewan on the 3rd Monday in February.
This day has been set aside to highlight the importance of family life and to provide an opportunity for Canadians to connect with all of their family members. Many gather together to enjoy public events or to stay inside and play a board game as a group.
The Bookworm’s World gives a historical perspective and says Family Day was to “reflect the values of family and home that were important to the pioneers who founded Alberta, and give workers the opportunity to spend more time with their families.
At PartyWeDo and with AlbinoPhant, we salute this focus on family connection and solidarity…
Happy Family Day! 😛
Nice Olympics too!
