National Roots Day is an annual commemoration celebrated on December 23rd of every year. During the holiday season, almost all family members would gather to celebrate the Festivus. On the other hand, it is the perfect time to honor all your family, ancestors, and the history of your family, which is altogether known as roots. The celebration day deals with your genealogy in specific. Set a time to celebrate where your roots have come from on this National Roots Day.
“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.” – Marcus Garvey
History of National Roots Day
The origin, history, and founder of National Roots Day are not exactly known. But, the celebration Day is all about the history of one’s family and its family members. The Festivus season is the best time to gather information about your surname. Roots Day is about knowing all the details about your family history, family members, origin, heritage, culture, and tradition. Never take your roots for granted, as it is important to know who you and your ancestors are. It is the genealogy that defines who you are right now. Roots Day encourages us to get to know more in detail about our predecessors and their lives. It is the perfect day to learn about your past and the history of your parent’s grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents.
