For those of you not living in Canada, Family Day is observed in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, Ontario and Saskatchewan on the third Monday of February. (In British Columbia, Family Day falls on the second Monday of February.) This holiday celebrates the importance of families and family life to people and their communities.
And basically it’s an excuse to sneak a statutory holiday into February, which of any month (in the Northern hemisphere) certain needs a holiday.
I’m not doing much to mark Family Day having just spent the weekend out of province with my immediate family at a memorial service for another family member. See Rough times, tough choices for the story there.
But in the meantime have fun reading some of these older posts on families and fitness:
