SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT ALBERTA FAMILY DAY

Alberta Family Day is a day that celebrates families and family values.  It originated with the early pioneers who first came to Alberta, and survived with the family at the center of their lives.

Family Day was introduced by Premier Don Getty and has become officially recognized by the Legislative Assembly of Alberta as a public holiday in 1989 (Family Day Act F4: 1989: cF-1.5 s1) and is celebrated on the Third Monday of February. This is a day where many workers may have off.

Alberta Family Day History and Facts

Alberta Family Day (Calendar-Updates.com): Basic Information on the holiday.

Family Day Act (Legislative Assembly of Alberta): The words of the law itself.

Alberta Centenial (official): Events for Alberta Day on other holidays in Alberta. The site also includes Alberta History.

Alberta Day News Releases (Gov.Ab.ca): News releases relating to Alberta Day and Alberta history.

Alberta: History and People (EducationCanada.com): A history of the founding and progress of Alberta through modern times.

The holiday is based around the family, so gifts and activities for this day should be family related.  There are many activities going on in Alberta itself (see Alberta Centenial website for info), and a gift to the family would be to bring them to one of these activities.

Other gift suggestions would be to purchase games that the whole family could enjoy together, inviting your family over for a big lunch or dinner, or traveling over the long weekend to visit your family if they do not live close by.  If you are visiting a family member, remember to bring or send flowers, wine, candy or a gift basket to say "I Love You."
