Happy Canada Day
Happy 151 birthday Canada, Happy Canada Day. I know that 151 is like a teenager compared to many nations, but still, we are excited. The past 150 years has been a wild and wooly adventure and I am sure the next 150 will be even more so.
When you ask people about Canada you may hear … Mounties, moose, mountains and maple syrup. Perhaps it would be beavers, hockey and “nice”. You might hear Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary. Someone might mention zippers, baseball, basketball and the telephone (all Canadian inventions). Someone might think of Tim Horton’s. Those are all Canadian (or started in Canada) it is true but we are so much more.
I suppose if you tried to encapsulate it all in one image there might be a moose being ridden by a beaver, wearing a mountie cap, drinking a Tim Hortons coffee while carrying a hockey stick and talking on the phone. I couldn’t find that image anywhere .. but I did find something
Canada has a proud history and heritage. We have a great culture and live in a great big beautiful nation. Canadians might not seem wildly patriotic and enthusiastic when stacked up next to some countries but don’t be deceived. WE LOVE CANADA.
If Canada is more than Mounties, moose, mountains and maple syrup … what its it? So much more than I can say in a few words. Come see for yourself.
From coast to coast and from coast to the world’s longest undefended border, most (all?) communities will be celebrating the day in some way.
If you are Canadian, have been to Canada, know a Canadian or have heard of Canada join us in celebrating Canada Day.
Happy Canada Day
