Happy 150th Canada!

Tomorrow is a pretty big deal, I’ll be busy celebrating and whooping it up to celebrate Canada’s 150th. Picnic’s, snacks, barbecues, parties and fireworks galore.

I can easily say I’m proud to be Canadian. So what are we celebrating?

In 1534 the colony of Canada was established, however, we celebrate the “birth” of Canada from July 1st, 1867. That is when the colonies of Canada; Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick united to become the Dominion of Canada. Thus we celebrate the anniversary or birthday of Canada on July 1st of every year.

To all Canadians, young and old, to those born here and those that chose to be here,  let your patriotic flag sail and be proud to be Canadian.

To all those from other countries, celebrate the day for whatever reason you have. Whether it’s love, achievements or just that the sky is a lovely shade of blue. Choose something and celebrate the day.

To my lovely followers, what country are you from and what is your most favourite thing about it?

Canadian National Anthem in English

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love, in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

Canadian National Anthem in French

O Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!

Car ton bras sait porter l’épée,
Il sait porter la croix!

Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

  1. What a delightful surprise, I had no idea you were Canadian too! And Bravo for using the original anthem and not the one they wanted to make changes to. I too am proud to be Canadian. Although we create great amusement in some countries because we stand back, look a situation over and don’t react but respond, and are infinitely polite, something I’m very proud of our country for. I also know that we are a very cosmopolitan country with a huge variety of immigrants from many differing lands. I haven’t travelled extensively through eastern canada but I have, through the west. Happy Canada Day Sheryl to you and yours and all others celebrating.
