Canada Day/Independence Day

What are your plans? We have to be somewhere from 5-7:30, so might just grill on Saturday and have leftovers on Sunday. I'd like to do some kind of apple turnover, too. You know American as apple pie kind of thing...
What are y'all having today up in Canada? Any traditional types of food for your celebration?

Probably the same kinds of things that you guys do. Fire up the BBQ if the weather permits and kick back with friends, beverages and watch fireworks later.

Thanks GB! Happy Independence Day to you all down south too!

Happy Canada Day!

Happy 4th of July! We are supposed to eat at our friends' house (burgers on the BBQ), then come down here (where it's legal) to do fireworks. James gets Monday off from school, so I get him for an extra day, which is good!

We don't want the damned geese either! Why do you think we keep sending them to you?

1982? Was the the "official" act making us no longer a "colony"? Canada Day is celebrated in recognition of the BNA of 1867 (see the Wikipedia link in Wyogal's post) and we've been our own country with our own governing body since then. The British Royal family has a special place in (most) Canadian hearts since we were once a colony.

Canada Day used to be called Dominion Day, and I thought the 1982 thing changing it to Canada Day was more for semantics than reality. Thanks BT for making me go look it up.
