Significance of South Africa Public Holidays

Some of the holidays celebrated by South Africa are unique to them for instance, The Day of Reconciliation that is celebrated honoring the end of Apartheid and celebrate the unity of the country. This day falls on the 16th of December every year. Similarly they are also known for celebrating the heritage day. Though Heritage is something that is also celebrated internationally, the South Africans took a step further and dedicated a day to celebrate their ancestors and heritage reminding themselves about their roots. just like how they revere their ancestors South Africans also respect the youth and as such celebrate the Youth Day. but this day has much more significance than just respecting the youth because this is the day when the  Soweto Uprising took the lives of many youths and the Youth day is a day for remembering them.
