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!

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:

This was taken at a friend's house. They had a Canada day party. They had about 100 flags all over. It looked good.
