Happy Family Day !

What entails your "family day" ?

In Canada, we are celebrating Family Day on Monday, Feb.21, 2011.

Though this is a nice excuse to have another holiday and have a long weekend, spending time with the family is a good break from work and school schedules.    The "family time" may be as simple as reading the book together or sharing the meal together as everyone is home, or going for a vacation.

Whatever is your type of "family day", enjoy the time with your loved ones specially when the children are young.   Children may not always remember their toys or clothes or room or the places they have been or their friends during their childhood years.

But they always remember the happy times spent with their family.

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.

  1. I like the idea of a family day. Sometimes life gets so busy that we forget the importance of family. Today, we spent time together as a family and even had lunch with our neighbors. I do agree that days like today are more important in shaping my daughters life than anything we could buy for her.

  2. Hi Tina,

    When I was reading your post, I was just chatting with my daughter about her school and what she wanted to do when she grows up. Yes, days like these are indeed precious. Good to know you had a lovely day.

    Nice to hear from you as always. See you!
