Happy Canada Day 2017!
Saturday also marks the beginning of Independence Day Weekend, but this specific day, July 1, belongs to our friendly neighbors up north.
Canada Day is celebrated similarly to Indpendence Day, with people enjoying fireworks, barbecues and parades to celebrate the national holiday. The only difference between the holidays happens to be the reasoning.
