Come Home Year is a civic event for many towns that encourages a return to home town. Due to significant economic migration away from many of the small rural towns these events draw many generations to celebrate.
In 2000, there was a provincial "Come Home Year" in Newfoundland and Labrador where many people came back to visit their various communities.
In 2005, Saskatchewan had a "Come Home Year" as part of the province's centennial celebration.

Famous quotes containing the words year and/or home:
“He hardly drinks a pint of wine,
And that, I doubt, is no good sign.
His stomach too begins to fail:
Last year we thought him strong and hale,
But now, hes quite another thing;
I wish he may hold out till spring.
Then hug themselves, and reason thus;
It is not yet so bad with us.”
—Jonathan Swift (16671745)
“Some parents feel that if they introduce their children to alcohol gradually in the home environment, the children will learn to use alcohol in moderation. Im not sure thats such a good idea. First of all, alcohol is not healthy for the growing child. Second, introducing alcohol to a child suggests that you condone drinkingeven to the point where you want to teach your child how to drink.”
—Lawrence Balter (20th century)
