TOTD 2018-7-1: Happy Canada Day

I am a day early because Canada Day is a day late this year since the first of July is a Sunday. This is a celebration of three colonies coming together is 1867. The three colonies were Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. I grew up in Washington state and Canada was a neighbor. A good neighbor I thought. By my calculation Canada is 151 years old. What I read they have fireworks on this day.

I think it was George Bernard Shaw that said, “The United States and Britain were two countries separated by a common language.” I think of Canada and the United States as two countries bonded by gratitude that they live on the good side of the border.

Since I am thinking of the Anglo-sphere. I hear Britain and Canada celebrate Thanksgiving on a different day than we do. My Brit friend tells me the date is July the Fourth. 😉
