This year we are hoping to take a trip to the farm to then travel into my hometown of Vauxhall, AB taking in their parade. The kids can then spend the rest of the day at the farm jumping on the trampoline and then running through the sprinklers to cool off. There are numerous events happening in towns and cities across the country celebrating Canada's day, so it should not be difficult finding something to do, as long as one does not have to work that is.
A highlight for many people are the fireworks displays capping off the day's festivities. We used to attempt our own fireworks show while I was growing up! However you choose to celebrate the day do not forget why we have this holiday to start with.
Canada Day is meant to recognize the birthdate of Canada which became a new federation with its own constitution on July 1, 1867. It was originally referred to as Dominion Day. July 1st was not officially known as Canada Day until 1983. www.timeanddate.com/holidays
Grab your red and white colors, wave a Canadian flag around and enjoy a Canadian beer tomorrow, it is what I plan to do! Enjoy everyone!
Thought of the day: How come you press harder on a remote control when you know the battery is dead?
