HARMONY DAY

Why Harmony Day?
• March the 21st is the Day of eliminating all forms of racial discrimination • In the Australian Government it is called Harmony Day • The theme for 2010’s Harmony Day is BELONGING

How do people celebrate?
• They might go to the Harmony Cup, like they did in 2004 and 2005. (The Harmony Cup is a football game). • They might have a barbecue. Perhaps the food could be kosher or halal. • They could have a working bee. • They might remember harmonious people in the world or in their lives.
