Happy Canada Day!

On July 1, 2010
Canada will celebrate it's 143rd year since Confederation.
Before 1982 Canada Day had been known as Dominion Day, First of July, Confederation Day, and July the First.
Canada Day celebrates the events that occurred on July 1, 1867, when the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government. The BNA Act proclaimed "one Dominion under the name of Canada," hence the original title of the holiday, "Dominion Day." Dominion Day was officially renamed "Canada Day" by an Act of Parliament on October 27, 1982. This change reflected the policy of successive governments to down play Canada's colonial origins.
Canada's national celebration is always observed on July 1, unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case it is observed the following day.

All Canadians are entitled to Canada Day off work - although some people have to work. (like Police, Fire and emergency service workers).
Canada Day is considered a Family Day with outings, picnics and celebrations of the birth of our nation. We wave flags, sing songs and enjoy the day!

I decided to make a Canadian "card" (it's not actually a card, it's a piece of art! lol) using a sticker from a sheet of 4th of July stickers!
Sneaky, eh?? The maple leaf and "Canada" were cut out with the Silhouette.


Here's my favourite Canadian joke:

The story goes that a bunch of men were sitting around trying to come up with a good, strong name for a country. After many hours of arguing, the men decided to draw letters at random out of a hat. The man drawing the letters was recorded as saying, "C, eh? N, eh? D, eh?"

hahahaha!!! Happy Canada Day, and have a great holiday, eh?
