Today is a very special day. It’s Canada’s 145th birthday, commonly known as Canada Day. Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st across the country and marks the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada – that’s the technical explanation, but Canada Day also means fireworks, parades, concerts, festivals, and basically the year’s biggest national party. It’s extra special this year because July 1st falls on a Sunday which means the holiday is moved to Monday, July 2nd which is MY BIRTHDAY!!! Yay me, it’s almost like all the parties will be for me!! LOL
One of our national symbols is the maple leaf which you will find on Canada’s flag, so in honour of my great country’s birthday, I give you the maple leaf!
Happy Birthday Canada, and I hope all of my fellow Canadians have an awesome long weekend!!! Mine started off great at Big Music Fest in Owen Sound, Ontario yesterday, and I will be posting photos in the next few days :).
