Happy Canada Day!

It's easy to forget when you are living in another country that it's your own country's national holiday today, but indeed it is today. July 1 is Canada Day, a holiday very similar to the American July 4 Independence Day in that both holidays celebrate the anniversary of each country's independence from Britain.

Canada Day celebrates the anniversary of July 1, 1867, the day the British North America Act was proclaimed in Britain, granting the independence of several of the British colonies in North America, and forming the Dominion of Canada.

Happy Canada Day to all my readers from Canada!
