Well, besides the diverse cultural heritage that makes up our rainbow nation, we celebrate the fact that all of our contributions together edifies our beautiful country.
And as obedient, submissive South Africans we will do just that:
Not that we want to, of course. We would much rather have gone about our usual business at work, being productive and all that. But seeing that a braai is what is expected of us and we all believe in unity, we will comply.
So whether you are having a backyard braai with phuthu, chakalaka and boerewors, a larney kebab-and-cous-cous barbeque on your patio or sitting around a fire burning a chicken and sharing Shaka Zulu stories, we want you to be proud of your heritage and have a fabulous day.
Happy Braai Day AKA Heritage Day!
