Happy Heritage Day South Africa




How are you celebrating Heritage Day? 
Known as “Braai Day”, this special holiday encourages South Africans to celebrate their culture, diversity of their beliefs and their traditions; as many cultures make up South Africa’s population.

Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu was made the National Spokesperson for “Braai Day” in 2007 and was quoted in an interview saying: “We are going to have this wonderful thing on the 24th of this month, where we all gather round one fire. It’s a fantastic thing, a very simple idea. Irrespective of your politics, of your culture, of your race, of your whatever, hierdie ding doen ons saam [this thing we’ll do together] just South Africans doing one thing together, and recognizing we are a fantastic nation.” 

With many South Africans taking to their braai’s all over the country it is overwhelming to think that such a simple appliance can bring an entire nation together. Whether it is a state of the art gas braai or one you have made yourself out of a good old drum barrel the power it holds is immense!

However you are celebrating, while lighting up your braai or cooking your dinner take a moment to think about your amazing nation (and how lucky you are to have a day off to have a braai!)
