Canadian Public Holidays



New Year’s Day

New Year’s Day marks the first day of the year, January 1st, according to the Gregorian calendar. Many cultures celebrate this day as it marks the end of one year and the beginning of the next. For many, this day is symbolic in that it gives us an opportunity to reflect, look back, to assess our accomplishments and failures, and it marks an opportune time to resolve to make positive changes for the future. Many celebrations occur to ring in the new year including fireworks at midnight, parades, special sporting events, time with family, and for many New Year’s Day is a day of recovery from New Year’s Eve celebrations the previous night.
