Happy Canada Day

To my friends and family 'Nawth of le Border,' Happy Canada Day.

Ciao,

For some reason O Canada! has been going through my head like a song that won't quit.

Thanks Steve. When you hear singing tomorrow you can join right in.

I'm going to be missing our usual Canada Day party at a friends this year as we are off to the Provincial Softball finals for Kate's team. I'll have to see if I can find those temporary flag tattoos for them all to wear.

OK Aix, educate me. What is Canada Day and how is it celebrated?

I hope all of our Canadian friends have a wonderful Canada Day!

Canada Day (formerly Dominion Day) is July 1st. Its the day Canada became a nation and is celebrated much like your Independence Day. Fireworks, BBQs, picnics, gathering with friends. Everyone does red and white stuff, and for a couple of weeks before the day you can't turn around without seeing the Canada flag pasted all over everything from napkins to chairs to cakes...

You get the idea. Just take out the blue in your flag and look at your celebrations and tone it down a notch and you have our Canada Day celebrations.

Alix,

You forgot the bonfires, eh? (Love them "eh's" - In fact, I'm qualified to say Eh and y'all in the same sentence. LOL) Anyway, and "... tone them down a notch"??? I think not. I've been to more roudy and raucus Canada Day celebrations than 4th of July parties. Perhaps, it was the company I kept.

Bon Chance!
Ciao,
