Braai Day !

Braai Day Vegan

 

Jan Braai’s initiative positioned National Heritage Day as South Africa’s annual day of celebration. South Africans are called to unite around fires, to share their heritage with other cultures and to celebrate the diversity that forms the core of the country’s unique values.

South Africa’s St. Patrick’s Day where Ireland has St Patrick’s Day, the French Bastille Day and Australia has Australia Day, South Africa’s Heritage Day is the one day where everything South African is celebrated and shared. This day contributes to the strengthening of South Africa as a nation through the act of nation building and social cohesion.
