Family Day 2017
Set the new Guinness World Record for the “Longest Line of Postcards”
What is the day on the second Sunday after Mother’s Day each year? It is the Family Day, a celebration day for the whole family proposed by FAMILY Project. Following the success last year, Family Day 2017 was organised as a series of large-scale territory-wide celebrations and shopping offers, inviting all citizens to celebrate this festival together.
Family Day 2016
Hong Kong’s First-Ever Celebration Day for Families
Many Hong Kong people celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, but there is not a day for the whole family in Hong Kong. In view of this, the FAMILY Project initiated the “Family Day”, which is on the 2nd Sunday after Mother’s Day each year (May 22 this year). To encourage celebration of “Family Day”, we organised a rich series of events under the “Family Day 2016” campaign. One of these events even created a world record!
