Oh. Pryvit, didn't hear you come in..

How do you celebrate Independence Day in your country?

....that's a very good question.

You see, all nations of the world of course celebrate America's Independence Day. Because of course, everyone knows that everyone in the world celebrates the some holidays as the Americans. Oh Christmas time in Israel, what fun times they have.

Now, here in Canada we celebrate the American Independence day by dressing in red and weeping for extended periods of time. This is to signify our link to the former British Empire. Which we were still a part of at the time.

After that we go to the border and throw snowballs at all the Americans who try to cross. This is our way of remembering the Invasion of Canada in 1775, when you lovely people tried to take our land as well. Ahaha, weren't those good times.

And then finally. We create elaborate models of the white house that we then burn while singing French-Canadian battle hymms.. It really is a stirring sight.

I'm that girl with the glasses saying, there's no such thing as a stupid question until you ask it."

[In all seriousness, really? Worst worded question ever. And for the record I didn't do much for Canada day. Hung out with parents and went out for supper.]

Yes my Canada was pretty good. We went out to the Chickenburger and hung around home. My brother and sister were in the Yukon so half the family was gone.
