On July 1st, we Canadians celebrate Canada Day (originally called Dominion Day) to mark the anniversary of Canadian Confederation in 1867.
For a Canada Day Checklist – with tons of info about celebrating our Nation’s Birthday – check out About.com’s article, “Things You Need to Know to Celebrate Canada Day.” It even includes links to both the English and French lyrics to our anthem.
And for kids, Kaboose.com helps kids celebrate Canada Day with crafts, colouring pages and more. (Note – in honour of Canada Day I am including the “u” in the spelling of colour and honour.)
Happy Birthday Canada!!!
