Family Day – February 10th, 2014

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

British Columbia will celebrate Family Day as a statutory holiday on Monday, February 10th, 2014.

In British Columbia, Family Day falls on the second Monday of February each year. This holiday celebrates the importance of families and family life to people and their communities.

Family Day was first held in Canada in the province of Alberta in 1990. It is supposed 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. Family Day was introduced in Saskatchewan in 2007 and in Ontario in 2008.

On Family Day, many people plan and take part in activities aimed at the whole family. These activities may include visiting art exhibitions, watching movies, ice skating, playing board games and taking part in craft activities.

As the weather is usually 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.

What are your plans for this upcoming Family Day? Why not bring your family to the Royal Scot Hotel and Suites?
