Overview of festivals and celebrations in New Zealand
Among popular holidays, it is also important to mention the tradition of celebrating Catholic Christmas – December 25. The next day after Christmas is also a holiday one and is called the day of gifts. New Zealanders celebrate The Labor Day on the third Monday of October. Waitangi Day is an important celebration for every modern New Zealander. The country widely celebrates this holiday every year on February 6. On this day, European settlers and indigenous Maori tribes signed a peace treaty. This event happened in 1840 and became the starting point of peaceful coexistence of aboriginal people and colonizers.
