Newcomer Connector Family Pot Luck:

 In Alberta we celebrate Family Day in February!

 Wednesday February 22nd

First celebrated in 1990, Alberta was the first province in Canada to have a statutory holiday celebrating family.  The Premier at that time, Don Getty, said it was important for all Albertans to take time for their families, and that this holiday would emphasize the importance of family values.
