Family Day

Many Canadians get a statutory holiday on Monday so this is a long weekend. Yay! The stat is named different things around the country but here in Alberta, it's called Family Day. So I thought I'd post this great little video that I first saw over at Fearsome Beard's blog. Ties of love and friendship make us all family!

Of course I'm not crying. What makes you think that? I just have something in my eyes... that looks a lot like tears. But since I'm grinning like a blissful lunatic, logic says that I can't be crying. So there.

My gawd but that was beautiful! We are celebrating Louis Riel but I wished they would have called it Family Day.

Have a good one! xo

Good video. I saw another one from that same ad campaign a while back that was pretty good as well - the x-ray one.

Thanks for posting. It's not something I would have thought of watching if you hadn't posted it!

According to President Cheeto, love can only be shared by

-White men and women

-opposite genders only

-Christians only

-Constitution lovers (he has still yet to read it)

-and said persons have to be dressed in colonial attire

*Magic mormon underwear optional

bill lisleman said...

well if you were in the states it would be Happy Presidents Day. You may know this but if you forgot, Washington and Lincoln birthdays are in Feb.
Using the bigger more inclusive definition of family does allow us all to be brothers and sisters. Have a great day sister.

Sadly our/. humanity is in excelelerated jeopardy to Love & live free & save our planet. Everyday I ask myself " what century are we in" & why are we/ humanity still fighting the old fights! Family Day is Humanity Day , we are all in this / life together and there is only one way out so choose love and enjoy your journey🙋❤️🇨🇦

I love that Canadians celebrate Family Day as a holiday in parts of Canada. That's the difference between Canada and the USA, right there! Hope you had a good one!
