Happy Canada Day

Today is July 1st!  And if you are Canadian you KNOW what that means. 

Happy Canada Day!

For those who don't know what Canada Day is (its kinda/sorta like the US July 4th)

On July 1, 1867, the British North Americas Act created the Dominion of Canada as a federation of four provinces, known as the Confederation of Canada. On June 20, 1868, the Canadian Governor General proclaimed that Canadians should celebrate the anniversary of the confederation.
July 1 became a statutory holiday, known as Dominion Day, in 1879. 

In 1967, Dominion Day events became more widespread and July 1 became popularly known as Canada Day. The date was also officially known as Canada Day since 1983.

Now because it falls on a Sunday, it won't be "officially" observed until tomorrow
but its still Canada Day!

I hope it is a wonderful day for all my Canadian readers.
