April Holidays (pg. 2)

Apr 01, 2016

ANZAC Day :: April 25th

This is one of Australia's and New Zealand's most important holidays. They celebrate it like we celebrate Remembrance or Veteran's Day. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. ANZAC soldiers fought for their countries and won, but even more significant than this event is that they were all volunteers, including the 8,000 who died in battle.

Arbor Day :: Last Friday of April (In Most States)

Arbor means tree, which makes Arbor Day a fitting name for a holiday about trees. Arbor Day is on the last Friday in April in most US states, but some places celebrate this holiday at different times of the year. Over a hundred years ago, one guy, J. Sterling Morton, changed the Nebraska prairie into the tree-covered state it is today. He used his position as the editor of Nebraska's first newspaper to encourage others to keep planting trees. On the first Arbor Day, the people of Nebraska planted over one million trees.
