Differences make us unique and special, and they are not a bad thing. Harmony Day is a day to celebrate Australia’s multiculturalism, be accepting of the different cultures and learn more about them. There are people from many different countries that live in Australia.
There are many people from other nations that now call Australia home and it is interesting to learn about their country of birth and culture. The top five languages spoken in Australia are, in order, English, Mandarin,Italian, Arabic and Cantonese. Every year Australians celebrate their multiculturalism on Harmony Day (the 21st of March).
