Freedom Day is a national public holiday, celebrated on the 27th of April, observing the first post-apartheid elections in South Africa, representing the freedom of a nation. This was a monumental day in South African history, as everyone over the age of 18, from any and all racial groups were now allowed to vote in the elections. Previously, under apartheid rule, non-whites had very limited voting rights, which meant that they had little to no say about how their country would be run and who would be the driving force behind it.
On this very day in 1994, President Nelson Mandela addressed parliament, moving the entire nation to tears. Freedom Day is a day dedicated to celebrating freedom and equality.
