Monthly National Days

World national days allow different nationalities from across the world to come together and celebrate their national identity as well as enjoy various cultural or national traditions.

Many of these celebrations have been around for centuries. For example, some national days celebrate the independence of a country from colonization such as Australia day on January 26th which celebrates Australia’s freedom from the British Empire Australia first became a colony in 1788 following a treaty between Great Britain and Australia after a then-famous battle with indigenous Australians at Sydney Cove.

Similarly, many African countries’ nationwide holidays commemorate African-American emancipation on 19th December 1886 when Liberia held its first election since gaining full independence in 1847 following the American civil war when Abraham Lincoln officially announced that all slaves were free.

When national and international days like these happen, we should make an effort to remember that it is not just our national or cultural identity that unites us, but the hopes and dreams that people all over the world share for a better tomorrow.

Celebrating national and international days can also provide opportunities for us to recognize national and cultural diversity as well as the value of both cultural traditions and independence.
