Canada Day Is July 1st

I am happy to read how much many members enjoy the U.S. 4th of July holiday. We here, in Canada, celebrate Canada Day the 1st of July. Canada Day is the day we celebrate Canada's independence from the British commonwealth.

We celebrate our holiday much the same way you celebrate your holiday with fireworks and picnics and of course, the muchly appreciated day off!

Editor's Note: Thank you for sharing this with us, Yvonne. ThriftyFun is located in the U.S. but we have many Canadian and other international members.

I grew up in Washington State, bordering Canada, and had personally never realized that Canada Day was so close to our Independence Day. Here is a link with more information about Canada Day:

Canada Day is the celebration of the union of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario into what was the begining of Canada. Canada is still part of the British Commonwealth, along with New Zealand, Australia, etc. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982 gave us our "independence". Please brush up on your history!
