Happy Canada Day
Happy Canada Day! Canada celebrates it’s 148th birthday this year. Canada Day is a national holiday most businesses and schools are closed. This allows everyone to get out and celebrate our wonderful country.
Prior to July 1, 1867, Canada was ruled by Britain and the Queen was the head of state. However, on July 1, 1867, Canada became it’s own federation, with it’s own constitution, and a Prime Minister as the head of state. Although the British Monarchy is still a major part of Canada and it’s people, they do not make our laws. Laws are made in Parliament by elected officials.
I created a birthday card for Canada Day and will be entering it into the Canada Day card contest over at the Paper Garden.

Communities hold celebrations and activities so that people can get out and enjoy themselves and have a happy Canada Day. The activities range from parades, art festivals, parties in the parks, and/or neighbourhood get togethers.
In Kamloops, we have Art in the Park and International Festivities. Art in the Park is for anyone who wants to set up a booth, display and sell their art. There are many talented people that live here. The International Festivities include various activities highlighting cultural dancing, painting, and food. The food is to die for, and if you are not lined up at your favorite ethnic food booth early, you may not get any of the goodies.
Please stop by the Paper Garden and vote for my card.
Happy Canada Day everyone.
