Information From Wikipedia



World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated by vegans around the world every 1 November. The benefits of veganism for humans and the natural environment are celebrated through activities such as setting up stalls, hosting potlucks, and planting memorial trees. The event was established in 1994 by Louise Wallis, then Chair of The Vegan Society in the United Kingdom, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the organisation and the coining of the terms "vegan" and "veganism". 


Information From Date And Time



Celebrated every year on November 1, World Vegan Day raises awareness about animal rights and advocates the widespread adoption of a vegan lifestyle. The day was created in 1994 by British animal rights activist, Louise Wallis, as a way to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of The Vegan Society in the United Kingdom.


Compassion Towards Animals


Adherents of veganism refrain from using anything that may have been made from animals, such as meat, eggs, milk, and honey. Strict vegans may also avoid products that use animal labor, including those that are tested on animals. Visiting zoos and aquariums or supporting activities such as animal racing or fighting is also frowned upon by vegans.

According to vegans, non-violence and compassion towards all of nature's creatures lie at the heart of the vegan philosophy. To them, activities that involve the use of animals as food, as labor, or as entertainment are exploitative and cruel and should be eschewed. For vegans, veganism is as much an issue of ethics as it is of health.

Plant-Based Diet


Because vegans do not eat animal products, their diet is solely plant-based. This makes the vegan diet high in fiber and low in cholesterol. Because of this, proponents of veganism suggest that adopting a vegan diet can have many health benefits including reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.

Due to low levels of Vitamin B12, calcium, and vitamin D in plant-based foods, nutritionists, and medical professionals recommend that vegans add supplements to their diets.

Vegans are allowed lifesaving medicines, even if they include animal products.

What Happens on World Vegan Day?


World Vegan Day is not an official holiday so, businesses, schools, and government offices are open. Vegan groups and practitioners of veganism organize educational drives and workshops to bring attention to the importance of animal rights and kindness towards our fellow creatures on Earth. Many restaurants and caf├ęs provide special menus for their vegan customers and they may even give discounts to celebrate World Vegan Day.

Information From Office Holidays


When is Ekka People's Day?


Ekka People's Day is officially the Royal National Agricultural (RNA) Show Day and a public holiday in Brisbane only.

Ekka People's Day is held on the Wednesday during the RNA Show period. The RNA Show commences on the first Friday in August, unless the first Friday is prior to August 5th, when it commences on the second Friday of August.


History of Ekka People's Day


The Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) is the largest and most loved annual event in Queensland, attracting on average 400,000 people to the Brisbane Showgrounds over the 10 days of the show.

The show celebrates agriculture in the region and feature competitions for animals from cows to cats and for prize vegetables and traditional skills like wood chopping. There is also a popular fun fair with a Ferris wheel. Visitors can be seen snacking on Dagwood Dogs, a corn dog or buying bags of candies and treats called showbags.

The show began back in 1876, which was a public holiday,  and has taken place each year since with the exception of 1919 (Spanish Flu) and 1942 (World War II).

The first 'Royal' Show took place in 1921 after the Royal National Agricultural and Industrial Association of Queensland was granted the Royal prefix under a warrant from His Majesty King George V.

The name 'Ekka' is a shortened version of the Queensland pronunciation of 'Exhibition'.

The public holiday always takes place on a Wednesday. This is at the request of the RNA who organise the Show Day.



Queensland Show Holidays



Ekka is a public holiday only in Brisbane, which is by far the biggest city in Queensland.

Across Queensland, each city, shire, and community will observe a public holiday on different Show Days. 93 different regions observe Show Holidays on 43 days through the year. Rather than detail all that information on our site, we show the Show Holidays dates for the four largest cities in Queensland after Brisbane below. We recommend visiting the Queensland Government Show Holiday page for full details.




Information From Time And Date


The Royal National Agricultural (RNA) Show Day, commonly called the Ekka, is held in Brisbane, Queensland's capital. It is usually held on the second or third Wednesday of August. Please see the table below for dates.

Is Royal National Agricultural Show Day Queensland a Public Holiday?

In 2021, the show was canceled in an effort to control the spread of Covid-19, and the attached public holiday was moved from August 11 to October 29. In 2020, the Queensland government moved the Ekka holiday from Wednesday to Friday in order to boost the tourism industry – previously, the organizers of Ekka had decided to cancel the event for 2020 due to coronavirus COVID-19.

What to Do


The holiday mainly affects people living in the Brisbane area, although other regions throughout the state have a similar holiday to the Ekka holiday for their local shows. This holiday is also known as the Royal Queensland Show holiday, the Exhibition holiday, or the Ekka holiday.


Some people choose to spend the day relaxing at home, catching up with friends and family, or going to the movies. However, many people throughout the state of Queensland, Australia, flock to the state’s capital city of Brisbane on this holiday to participate in the RNA show. Although only one day is allocated as a public holiday for the show, the event spans for more than a week, attracting more than 600,000 visitors, including tourists and people from other towns and cities in Australia and worldwide. Many people traveling from rural or regional areas of Queensland take a day off work or take their annual holiday leave for this occasion.


The RNA show, commonly known as the Ekka, features fireworks displays, a large sideshow alley with various games and amusement park rides, fashion parades, prize-winning animals, crafts, and food. Other attractions include the show bag pavilion, where many show bags are sold featuring candy, toys, gadgets, food, and magazines. Another highlight of the event is the grand parade.


Many towns, cities, and shires throughout the rest of Queensland are allocated a holiday similar to the Ekka holiday to host their own local shows, which mirror the Ekka at a smaller scale, at different times of the year. The culmination of these shows is that many of the local show winners in various competitions compete at a state level at the Ekka. Statewide competitions at the Ekka include those for cattle breeds, show dogs, horses, sheep, and sheepdogs. The winners of their regional or local shows usually travel to Brisbane to compete in the Ekka show.


What's Open or Closed?


The RNA Show Day is a public holiday in the Brisbane area only. However, many regions in southeast Queensland have a day off for their local shows in the same week to coincide with the RNA Show Day. Schools are closed as are many businesses. Many businesses, as well as state and local government employees in the Brisbane region, have a day off. Extra public transport services, which include bus and train services, are offered to those traveling to and from the show on the day. Taxis may be busy, particularly in the evening when people travel home from the Ekka.


About the Ekka


The history of the show day started when a group of colonists met in Brisbane to form an agricultural and industrial association in 1875. The association aimed to promote and encourage Queensland’s agricultural and industrial development, as well as giving country and urban residents a chance to celebrate Queensland lifestyle. An intercolonial exhibition was held from August 22-26, 1876, and proved to be a big success. A public holiday was declared and about 17,000 people attended the show on the opening day. At the time, Brisbane’s population was only about 22,000 people. The first “Royal” Show was held in 1921 and later on, the name of the show was shortened to “Ekka” indicating people’s affection for the show.

The Ekka has been held annually with only three exceptions: when Brisbane suffered a Spanish influenza epidemic in 1919, during World War II in 1942 when the show grounds were used as a staging depot for troops, and in 2021 when the show was canceled to curb the spread of coronavirus COVID-19.


Symbols


Images associated with the Ekka show holiday feature: show bags filled with candy, especially the Bertie Beetle show bag, which has been an all-time favorite over the decades; fireworks displays; Dagwood dogs, a type of food similar to corn dogs; the sideshow alley; and the Ferris wheel.

Wikipedia Information:


Nevada Day is a legal holiday in the state of Nevada in the United States. It commemorates the state's October 31, 1864 admission to the Union. The first known observance of Nevada Day (originally known as Admission Day) was by the Pacific Coast Pioneer society during the 1870s. The Nevada Legislature established it as a state holiday in 1933.

Observance

Nevada Day was originally observed on October 31 each year. Since 2000, it is observed on the last Friday in October.[1]

On this holiday all state, county and city government offices are closed, along with most schools and libraries.[2] Some private businesses, like banks, also closed at their discretion. In Nevada's capital, Carson City, a parade is held through the heart of downtown, as well as a carnival and several other events.[3]

In 2000, the Nevada Legislature decided to celebrate the holiday on a Friday, hoping that a three-day weekend would generate more interest. Nevada Day is now observed on the last Friday in October. But most of the big events in Carson City, including the parade, occur on the following Saturday. This was shortly followed by Las Vegas and Henderson adding up to three Nevada Days throughout the year in addition to the actual holiday which are determined by city council vote during the first week of each legislative year.

Until 2000, Halloween was observed in Carson City, Douglas CountyLyon County, and Storey County on October 30, so as to not conflict with the holiday.

Since 2000, Carson City's newspaper, Nevada Appeal, has sponsored a month-long "treasure hunt" each year in October (except for 2003 and 2004) to celebrate Nevada Day. Beginning on the first Monday, a clue is posted each weekday on a web site set up for the contest which helps narrow down the search area. The clues all have to do with Nevada history so it encourages people to study the state's history in order to find the "treasure". Upon finding it, the treasure (a small plaque referred to as a "medallion") can be redeemed for up to $1000.[4]

In 2003, 2008, and 2014 the legal holiday for Nevada Day fell on October 31, the actual day of admission.

In 2018, the state's first major professional sports team, the National Hockey League’s Vegas Golden Knights, observed Nevada Day with a matinee game.

In popular culture

In 2006, Nevada Day, and the Nevada town of Pahrump, were central to the plot in "Nevada Day", a two-part episode of the Aaron Sorkin television drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Part One was originally slated to air on Nevada Day, October 31, but was delayed a week and aired on November 6. Part Two followed a week later on November 13.

The 2010 Nevada Day celebration was mentioned on the Colbert Report in reference to Colbert's "March to Keep Fear Alive Insanity Bus" held on the same day as the 2010 Nevada Day parade.
