X is for... An Excellent Time to Celebrate Canada's Birthday

Thank you for joining Amanda and I as we blog through the alphabet. This week, X!
On July 1st this year Canada will be celebrating her 150th birthday.   

To that end oh my, things are getting busy.
Stores is promoting their 150th birthday sales.
Communities are prettying themselves up.. for instance our town put up a lovely begonia bed made up in the shape of the Canada flag.
Towns are putting together bigger than normal Canada day events.

I have to admit, it's rather fun watching folks prepare. 

Even funnier... on our family vacation (celebrating my mom's 80th) my sisters (who don't celebrate Canada Day) were busy talking about how they should have a party for all their friends this year.  After all, Canada's turning 150 this year!

As to what we'll do?   I haven't a clue!  I'm not really planning a party (I'll let my younger sister plan that).   I expect we'll take in the town events, probably go out to the local provincial park and have a bbq supper, swim and walk (if the weather is nice that is). 

If you want to find out what's going on across Canada, you can check out this site
 Celebrate Canada is a four-day celebration that begins on June 21 with National Aboriginal Day, continues with Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (June 24) and Canadian Multiculturalism Day (June 27), and comes to a spectacular finish on Canada Day (July 1). Find out what is going on in your region and across the country!

If you are in Ontario, check out some of these Canada Day events.   Sure to be something to interest most anyone eh?  :)

  5. I've been loving all the Canada 150 pictures I'm seeing from my friends in the Great White North! We celebrated yesterday by having my daughter's boyfriend and his parents over and introducing him to "Canadian" food - I joked with him that it's not much different from "American" food, just with more maple syrup. LOL But for a 150th birthday, we put forth some eXtra effort - smoked salmon, poutine, maple glazed carrots, and then butter tarts (from scratch!) and Nanaimo Bars for dessert.

    Happy Canada Day!!
