    Default Dingaan's Day

    Well on this day the 16th December (A Public Holiday in South Africa) , many Years ago it was called Dingaan's Day in South Africa, then changed later to Day of the Vow (Covenant), and still later which is still Today known as Reconciliation Day.

    Day of the Vow - Wikipedia

    Although i put this in History, it is because of the Significance of this Day and of course to Celebrate our 54th Anniversary!

    Cannot believe the time that has passed and that i am actually still here with my Dearest Irene. I was so fortunate to find her, so Third Time Lucky! How True!

    Cheers
