it was an ontario holiday today, as the citizens celebrated family day...it was a quiet day for bernie and i and so i decided to make my ruby tuesday post with several family pictures. it seems that almost every few weeks or so, the goldens are celebrating family day!..yes love and god keeps our family together and so does the computers and our cameras and all of the feasts that my niece, rachel and my nephew, little john make for us!
Family Day is observed in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Ontario and Saskatchewan on the third Monday of February. This holiday celebrates the importance of families and family life to people and their communities.
What do people do?
On Family Day, many people plan and take part in activities aimed at the whole family. These include visiting art exhibitions, watching movies, skating on outdoor ice rinks, playing board games and taking part in craft activities. Some communities plan special public events, and art galleries and museums may have reduced price or free entry.
As the weather is usually very cold in February, hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies are popular snacks. Other people use the long weekend as an opportunity for a short winter break or to travel to visit family members or friends. As Family Day falls on the same date as National Heritage Day, some people use the day to explore their personal heritage and family history.
happy ruby tuesday everyone and may god bless you all!...love terry
