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.
