Heritage Day| South Africans Have Taken Social Media By A Storm With Beautiful Images


24 September 2021

Amid the dangers of the Covid-19 pandemic, the people of South Africa went on to celebrate their heritage. With things being different at the moment, South Africans chose to respect the restrictions that have been implemented by the government but yet continued with celebrating heritage day.  

The 24th of September, "Heritage Day", is a very special day for the people of South Africa. Citizens from all provinces and all corners of the country dress up in beautiful clothing which identifies who they are and let their traditional attires take the whole attention of the day as they celebrate their heritage with a touch of the personal artisan. It is a special occasion for South Africans as they continue to move forward into unity through what once had then fought against each other and had them divided. Heritage day also passes on a message on the power and beauty of diversity.

Each culture from all the 11 official languages in the country, comes forward on this day to embrace the essence of what it means to them to be South Africans, through food, music, dance, and attire.

Earlier today, almost everyone in the country was dressed up and embracing their heritage. Many people from tribes such as Xhosa, Venda, Tsonga, Zulu, Tswana, Swati, Pedi, Ndebele, and Basotho chose to host small events in which they took videos and images which they went to share on social media platforms for the rest of the country to see.
