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:
“The phenomena of the year take place every day in a pond on a small scale. Every morning, generally speaking, the shallow water is being warmed more rapidly than the deep, though it may not be made so warm after all, and every evening it is being cooled more rapidly until the morning. The day is an epitome of the year. The night is the winter, the morning and evening are the spring and fall, and the noon is the summer. The cracking and booming of the ice indicate a change of temperature.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“For its home, dearie, homeits home I want to be.
Our topsails are hoisted, and well away to sea.
O, the oak and the ash and the bonnie birken tree
Theyre all growing green in the old countrie.”
—William Ernest Henley (18491903)
