FUN FACT ABOUT SOUTH AFRICA’S ANIMAL KINGDOM
South Africa’s lion, wildebeest, cheetah and springbok, are four of the seven fastest mammals on the entire planet!
And the springbok is actually the national animal of South Africa. Springboks are very common in rural areas and on many farms located across this great nation. There is even a town named after this animal, which is the largest town in the Namaqualand area in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. It was called Springbokfontein until 1911, and was then shortened to Springbok.
VICTORIA DAY IN CANADA – MEMORIAL DAY IN THE UNITED STATES
Victoria Day in Canada is Monday, May 22nd and Memorial Day in the US is one week later on Monday, May 29th.
Many North Americans celebrate their respective long weekends with barbecues and family get-togethers, but these holidays are so much more than a chance to kick off the summer months. At its heart, both of these holidays are days to solemnly honor all of the men and women who have died in military service.
The main purpose of Victoria Day and Memorial Day is to pay tribute and memorialize the veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
From all of us here at Eat Sum More, we salute the men and women who lost their lives while serving in the military.
