An ancient custom of honouring the Roman God of Fertility has over the years gone through different connotations and today has become the day to celebrate love: Valentine’s Day. Beliefs about 14th of February range from it being the day birds propose to each other, to the day of Saint Valentine’s martyrdom. Even though customs and traditions on Valentine’s Day have changed and people have been celebrating it differently from one another, the essence of its festivity has remained the same over the past centuries.
Australia Day celebration marks the beginning of British rule in the country with the landing by Captain Arthur Phillip at Port Jackson back in 1788. The early settlers celebrated colonisation and for many years it was celebrated in just NSW until 1994 when the day was officially recognised as a public holiday countrywide. Hence, celebrations are ought to be the grandest where it all began and Sydney being the capital of NSW witnesses the biggest celebration on this day.
