Celebrate Australia Day with a festive bouquet

January 26, 2012

There may not be too many celebrations for Australia Day in the U.S., but this holiday holds a special place in the hearts of Australians, wherever they may live.

The holiday celebrates the "Australian identity" as it was formally established on January 26, 1788. From the earliest British settlers to the integration between white settlers and indigenous people, all types of Australians have been working to determine their national identity for hundreds of years.

The first Australia Day celebrations were reportedly held in 1808, and by 2002, more than 7 million people celebrate the holiday nationally, according to the Australia Council of New South Wales. Now, residents and ex-pats alike celebrate the land down under. The news outlet reports that Australia Day has become the country's biggest annual day of celebration, with more than 5,000 events held in New South Wales alone.
