Heritage Day on September 24 is a day that celebrates South Africa's roots, their rich, vibrant, and diverse cultures. Heritage Day on 24 September recognises and celebrates the cultural wealth of our nation. South Africans celebrate the day by remembering the cultural heritage of the many cultures that make up the population of South Africa. Various events are staged throughout the country to commemorate this day.

Heritage Day is a public holiday in South Africa that is always celebrated on September 24th. Each year in early spring, people across the nation get together to eat, drink and be merry, celebrating what makes us all uniquely South African. If Heritage Day falls on a Sunday, the following Monday is observed as a public holiday.

Celebrating heritage Day is important to us as South Africans because it plays an important role in promoting cultural diversity, social cohesion, reconciliation, peace and economic development. Here in South Africa we mark heritage Day as the day by wearing traditional outfits, eating traditional foods, learning about different cultures and spending time with friends and family. This is a day in which we all are encouraged to celebrate our own cultural traditions in the different context of the great diversity of cultures, beliefs, and traditions that make up the nation of South Africa.

The most iconic clothing item in the Xitsonga culture is xibelani. It is a knee-length skirt typically worn by Xitsonga women. It is made from a bolt of cloth, a fabric called salempur, about 18m long. They also have a top called a yele that they wear with a tightly fitting T-shirt
