Again I am late in posting but I just had to write about this special day. Yesterday July 1st was Canada Day and the colours red and white were proudly displayed, even worn across the country as Canada Day activities from coast to coast were celebrated to honour its history, culture and diversity.
From news I hear from family and friends, the weather has been anything from sunny skies, thunder, rainy or dry...some plans have had to be postponed but all festivities will continue right through to this weekend.
July 1st is considered Canada Day because on July 1st 1867 was the enactment of the British North America Act of 1867. This established the Canadian Federal Government which made the four Canadian provinces at the time into one country. It is a statutory holiday and a day that all Canadians can feel proud of their country.
When we lived in Canada we used to look forward to and thoroughly enjoy this memorable day and all the Parades with marching bands, picnics in parks, BarBQs and family get-togethers as well as the lovely fireworks displays. What beautiful memories!
