      In my opinion Family day will be observed where the members of the family are living separately and their own places like to meet and celeberate the day as a singly family..

      So it is celeberated only where they are separated..

      Why isn't family day in the Summer, no fun going to the beach in the freezing weather.

      I wish british columbia would get with the program and start celebrating family day! We could use an extra day off too.

      I own a small business and have 2 kids. Another holidays means I work 60 hours that week because I can't afford to pay extra for staff so I don't spend any time

      With kids. How about a small business owner day off? And my staff celebrates employer appreciation day by working straight time
