We don’t have family day here in BC yet. Next year.

It’s hard to get any business done with offices closed in the other provinces.

Given that I am a nurse, I likely won’t get the day off.

@Gemstone:  In some provinces (not all) our government decided February was depressing and awful with no holidays, so they granted a new holiday called Family Day to give people a day off (yay long weekend!) to relax with their families and have fun. There are usually family events planned at city halls, community centres, etc to celebrate. I spent the day with Darling Husband and friends (they have a little one though, so I guess we crashed their family day, lol!). Darling Husband was happy for the day off ๐Ÿ™‚

@bakerella:  Oh my gosh. How awesome! I have to admit, I learn more things every day that make me want to move to Canada. I know that sounds like a joke, but it’s not. It’s really disheartening sometimes to live in a country that doesn’t uphold the values of health and family, especially in the workplace.

@Gemstone:  I’m not going to lie, I wouldn’t trade it for the world ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it here, we get a lot of luxuries for the taxes we pay. I’m quite content here and grateful for my country!!!

Louis Riel Day in Manitoba.  Theres another name we have for it, but I’d rather not offend anyone.  Don’t know why they didn’t just call it Family Day as well…

@AB Bride:  Actually, we didn’t.  Came into play the exact same year.
