What is Canada Day?

Canada Day

On the first of July of ever year, Canadians celebrate Canada Day, which marks the day Canada became a sovereignty of Great Britain in 1867. Prior to 1983, however, Canada Day was called Dominion Day.

Canada Day is a public holiday with a patriotic mood, where the national flag of Canada is widely spread across the country, and many people paint their faces with Canada’s national colors. Furthermore, myriad events are organized to commemorate the day, such as parades, carnivals, fireworks display, festivals, and concerts. In the capital city of Canada, Ottawa, the celebrations are conspicuously ebullient and jubilant.

In Quebec, Canada Day is also known as Moving Day – many people start moving out to different homes; as many home leases start on the first of July and last for precisely one year. The celebrations in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is different, however; for there are two different occasions that coincide on the first of July: Canada Day and Memorial Day. Ergo, in the morning, people commemorate the lost souls of the Battle of the Somme during World War I by holding memorial services. Thereafter, the celebrations of Canada Day commence, which are tantamount to those throughout the country.
