Holidays in Canada

New Year's Day New Year's Day is the first day of the new year. On the modern Gregorian calendar, it is celebrated on January 1. Almost all countries use the Gregorian calendar as their main calendar.

Family Day
In most of Canada, Family Day is a statutory holiday occurring on the third Monday in February. In the provinces of Manitoba and Prince Edward Island, the statutory holiday on this date is instead termed Louis Riel Day and Islander Day, respectively. This holiday celebrates the importance of families and family life to people and their communities.

Good Friday
Good Friday, also known as Holy Friday, Black Friday, Great Friday, is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday.

Easter Monday Easter Monday is the day after Easter Sunday and is celebrated as a holiday in some largely Christian cultures, especially Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox cultures. Easter Monday in the Roman Catholic liturgical calendar is the second day of the octave of Easter Week.

Victoria Day Victoria Day is a federal Canadian statutory holiday celebrated on the first Monday on or before May 24, in honour of both Queen Victoria's birthday and the current reigning Canadian sovereign's official birthday.
Victoria Day is always on a Monday, and thus the holiday is part of a long weekend, which is commonly referred to as the Victoria Day Weekend, the May Long Weekend, the May Long, or the May Two-Four (a case of beer there is called a "two-four" and many of these are consumed over the holiday). The weekend is also called the May 24th weekend, although it does not necessarily fall on May 24th.

Canada Day
Canada Day , formerly Dominion Day , is Canada's national day, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united two British colonies and a province of the British Empire into a single country, still within the Empire, called Canada. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally.

August Civic Holiday
Civic Holiday is the most widely used name for a public holiday celebrated in parts of Canada on the first Monday in August. The holiday is known by a variety of names in different provinces and municipalities, including British Columbia Day in British Columbia, New Brunswick Day in New Brunswick, and Saskatchewan Day in Saskatchewan.

Labour Day Labour Day or Labor Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the economic and social achievements of workers. Labour Day has been celebrated on the first Monday in September in Canada since the 1880s.

Thanksgiving Day In Canada Thanksgiving occurs on the second Monday in October and is an annual Canadian holiday to give thanks at the close of the harvest season. On January 31, 1957, the Canadian Parliament proclaimed: A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.":

Remembrance Day Remembrance Day also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day (the event it commemorates) or Veterans Day is a Commonwealth holiday to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. It is observed on 11 November to recall the end of World War I on that date in 1918 .

Christmas Christmas or Christmas Day is a holiday observed mostly on December 25 to commemorate the birth of Jesus.

Boxing Day Boxing Day is a bank and public holiday commonly occurring on 26 December. In Canada Boxing Day is primarily known as a shopping holiday. Canada's Boxing Day has often been compared with the American Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.
