I write to you from the State side of the border.

It will be July 4th on Saturday – parade, town fair, hot dogs, baseball, Louis Armstrong music, Sousa, fireworks.
An All-American day.

We write asking Canadians to share with us something distinctively “Canadian” you do to mark Canada.
Clearly, it is a day off. There are fireworks, and folks fly the flag in honor of the 148th anniversary of Confederation.

Is there anything you do that would distinguish a Canada Day celebration from a July 4th event (other than the flag).

Is it in the music ? The Foods ? Is it a day for Canadian beer ?

Let us know.


And, Happy Birthday – wish we could be there with you.
