Day 16 Activity 2 Week 4 Summer Learning Journey 2017

Summer Learning Journey

Activity 2
Create a brand new public holiday for the country.  Use your creativity to come up with a name for the holiday and a short description of how people in the country celebrate the holiday. Do they all get the day off? Do they eat special foods or go to special events to mark the day?


  1. Hello there Lusia,

    It's Von and I'm glad your Blogging again! Great choice of holiday and I like the holiday name as well. I love your reasons about your chosen holiday. Although the country of New Zealand does belong to the Maori but I think it's best only for the Pacific people to just celebrate it instead of every different nationality apart from Islanders celebrating the holiday.. Because Pacific means the Islands right well.. I think it's best only for Islanders to celebrate the holiday you have come up with.

    Anyways fabulous work Lusia and Keep up the great blogging :)

    1. Hi Lusia and Von!

      I am also really happy to see that Lusia is blogging again as well. This is a great idea for a public holiday. I think that it's really important that everyone have the opportunity to celebrate their heritage, their culture and their traditions.

      Here in New Zealand we have a huge number of people from a range of Pacific Islands who, I'm sure, would really enjoy coming together to honour their heritage. I still enjoy celebrating Canada Day with my family and friends from a far. Canada Day is 1 July and I always have a special Canadian meal to honour the day!

      I like your thinking, Lusia :)


  2. Hey Lusia,

    Its great to see you blogging again and Wow fantastic holiday and I agree I think we do need to start a pacific holiday so we can celebrate our culture and have fun with our family. I also really liked how you added a part about why you chose the holiday. Its great to see you blogging again

    Fabulous work! Keep it up you have just 4 more days to go!
