National Family Week

The Fourth Week in November is National Family Week. It is always celebrated the week of Thanksgiving. I guess because this is when we mostly spend time with our family. According to Alliance1, National Family Week is designed to build community connections and honor those who strengthen families. Not only is this week the National Family Week, it is also International Bible Week.

National Family Week was founded in 1968. It originated in Canada. In 1985, it was proclaimed as the official week celebrated during the week of Thanksgiving by Canadian Government. It now is also celebrated in America, United Kingdom and Australia. In which it is celebrated at different weeks in those countries.
