LOOK WHAT CAME FROM CANADA
One of the most important holidays in Canada is Canada Day, which is celebrated on every year on July 1st. This particular holiday celebrates Canada becoming a self-governing dominion of Great Britain and a federation of four provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec. On Canada Day, most people have pancake breakfasts, parades, carnivals, firework shows, and concerts. Canada’s national flag, the Maple Leaf, is proudly displayed and many people paint their faces red and white which are the colors in the flag. Also, Canadians wear these two colors in their clothing to commemorate this national holiday.
Remembrance Day, which is also a national holiday, is observed to remember those Canadians who lost their lives while serving their country in war. Specifically, families remember those soldiers who died in World War I and World War II. Families visit cemeteries to put flags on the graves of lost ones to show their appreciation of their service to their country. This annual holiday takes place on November 11th and workers are entitled to be paid even if the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday.
