Monday is Family Day in New Brunswick, Islander Day in Prince Edward Island, and Heritage Day in Nova Scotia. To celebrate, many people plan and take part in activities aimed at the whole family. We thought it might be interesting to get Danny Hennessey’s, New Business Sales Broker – Higgins Insurance, perspective on the Holiday!
What are your plans for Family Day?
Because it is often snowy around Family Day I always plan something a little bigger outdoors for my two little boys (Finn who is 5 and Leo who is almost 3). This year, snow permitting, we plan to get everyone bundled up and go out into our yard where we have some little forts dug from the earlier snowfalls. We will slide and play and then have a fire outside and sit on big warm blanket and have hot chocolate. We will bake a fun treat for the kids with their help, although they mostly just eat ingredients as we bake. That night we will have a little sleepover style movie night where we clear the living room, make popcorn, and cuddle up together and let them stay up past their bedtimes – but the fun day outdoors usually takes care of that
Are you going to do a Virtual Check in with any of your family members?
Yes, we will have a video call with my in laws so they can see the boys. We will also call my parents to see how everyone is holding up with the tough Winter due to pandemic restrictions, illness, and worry.
What is the most important Family Day value to you?
To make it 100% a day for my kids, and commit to being present. We are often so busy with errands, cleaning, cooking, school, swimming lessons, daycare, you name it, so on family day we ditch the big plans and remind our little troop of 4 how lucky we are to all be together and healthy and happy and warm. The pandemic has given us a ton of insight into what makes our family happy and it turns out we don’t need much just each other and our little space here in Quispamsis!

To conclude, we are wishing everyone a great Holiday Monday! As the weather is usually very cold in February some of us might just enjoy hot chocolate, baking, watching movies, playing board games. Other people use the long weekend as an opportunity for a short winter break or to travel to visit family members or friends.
Wishing everyone a Happy Family Day, Islander Day, Heritage day from Higgins Insurance.
