Day 16 Bonus Activity

On Waitangi Day (6/2) we don't really do much to celebrate the National Day but we usually spend it as a family (or with friends) and go to the beach and have a BBQ. 

When we lived in Rotorua there would usually be some community Waitangi Day celebrations which we would attend and enjoy.  I remember going to Whakarewarewa Village...

As a family, we have gone to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds where the original document was signed at the treaty house...they also had a replica copy of the document there for you to view because they have the original at the National New Zealand Museum of Te Papa in Wellington.

Hi Harrison,

This sounds like how my family spends Waitangi Day. It is an interesting time to watch the news. Many people feel differently about the treaty and government.

Thanks for continuing to write thoughtful and interesting blogs!
