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.

Merry Christmas

My advice about Christmas.
Whether or not you celebrate a holiday at this time of year, take some time to live and love life. Relish the moments that come and go so fast they are easily missed.

Be safe and healthy, share love and joy whether you receive it or not. Someone out there is in need of kindness, great or small, and you may be the angel that brightens their day with a smile or even a friendly hello. A heart is warmed faster by giving than receiving.

Whichever your beliefs, or your customs, take care of yourself and those that share your world and enjoy the day and festive spirit of the season.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
