Happy Family Day!

11:18 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

Happy Family Day!  ( And happy Presidents Day to our friends to the south of us!)

 Its Family Day in Alberta, which is a statutory holiday here!  This holiday was created with the intent that everyone would get the day off and be able to spend some extra time with their family!  I guess this does not apply to those lucky enough to have to work in the service industry ( Retail/Restaurant) etc, as it looks like everything is open today. 

I will be spending this holiday with my Wife and Baby Kyron, so I am thankful that I do not have to work! 

Here is a quick video of Kyron chillin' on his daddy's lap! 

What are your plans for the day?  Do you think that these holiday's are a good idea?
 I hope that everyone has a great day!

    Great video!

    My hubby has to work today since he's a manager at a car dealership! Therefore, it doesn't feel like a holiday here! If they are gonna call it Family Day, then every store should be closed so everyone could spend it with their family! Just sayin'.

    Oh you lucky Albertans with your stat holiday in February! I think the BC government should get on adding a stat too.

    I think any holiday is a good idea! I'm still waiting on Debbie Day which I know would be a huge hit and involve food of some sort - maybe cheesecake.
