National Canada Day is celebrating the “anniversary of Confederation”, the Constitution Act which was signed on July 1, 1867. This was when the three British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada united to form a single country. This is now celebrated as “Canada Day”.
They celebrate this with parades, carnivals, BBQ, music festivals, displays of fags, ceremonies and of course fireworks, whilst singing the national anthem “O Canada”. This holiday is celebrated to show Canada their proud history, culture and achievements. Canada outfit celebrations are usually the red, white and blue colours; they also wear pins or buttons showing off the Canadian flag.
Canadians really do love their maple syrup. Canada day will of course have their maple candies, maple sundaes, maple syrup cakes, maple syrup pie, maple cookies, maple syrup burger patties, and even maple-glazed bacon, crazy right! Can’t get any sweeter than that? Don’t worry they also have poutine which is a popular dish made up of chips, curds and gravy – sounds good right!?
“History is who we are and why we are the way we are.”
