Canadian Days: Canada Day

June 30, 2008 at 9:36 pm 4 comments

Since this is a blog on Canadian concerns, and tomorrow is Canada Day, I suppose I should make a post about something Canada day related. Something…


…uh…yeah…Canada Day…


The thing is, I tend to shy away from nationally and spiritually sanctioned holidays. Not that there is anything wrong with them, but  I celebrate being a human everyday, and I live in Canada every day–lately– and all is good every day, and I celebrate that goodness.

Through my blog I try to celebrate all things Canadian in my own little way on a regular basis, so why put so much effort into one single day of celebration? Besides, the usual community celebrations are, typically, quite dull and a waste of time,and taxpayers money. Yes, that’s my opinion, and you should enjoy your time in whatever way you choose to spend it, which may include joining a community Canada Day celebration. I hope you have fun.

As for me, I’m going to spend it either cycling around Toronto, or sleeping most of the day before getting up and teasing my cat. Either way it’s going to be a good day.

What are you doing for Canada Day?

    In America, holidays tend to get much more attention if somehow associated with drinking. I’ll try and drum up some Canadian whiskey tonight.

    Canada Day is a big celebration here. Most people tend to head to their cottages to party-down there. I have a tendency to avoid large crowds, though, much to my own detriment at times.

    Happy upcoming 4th.
