Happy Canada Day!

J0400813Today is Canada Day. We’re celebrating it outdoors with food, drinks, fireworks and fun with friends. I do however sort of wish that we could get this day sorted out so that it falls on a Monday. This holiday on a Tuesday thing is sorta inconvenient. 

The occasion marks the joining of the British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces (the Province of Canada being divided, in the process, into Ontario and Quebec) on July 1, 1867. Yes, I did have to look this up.

Still, Canada is 141 years old today and may I say, I think she looks marvelous!!

So, Happy Birthday old girl er, old country, er, Canada!

Enjoy your day.
