What does Waitangi day mean to me? Not much, really. To me it’s just like the weekends except shorter. But I like it as we get a day off school.
I know that Waitangi day is a day when the British and the Maori signed a treaty to stop the wars happening, but it just isn’t really something I’m proud about, since they needed a treaty to stop the war.
Waitangi day might mean a lot to some people, and nothing to others, but I guess my opinion is in the middle. It’s just a day when I rest. But if I were involved in that event, I might treat it differently.
