Happy Birthday Canada

Today we celebrate Canada's 147th anniversary as a country.

  What are Canadians really like, you might wonder? What sets them apart as unique?

We often go around in strange clothing to protect ourselves from the bitter cold.

We have strange but loveable politicians.

We use the metric system of measurement but always make allowances for our neighbours to the south who still use the Imperial system

We are kind to animals and our beer is 5% alcohol

And we know how to throw a party. Let the fireworks begin!

From Hermione's Heart

I am a "Natural Born Abroad" so I have dual citizenship - born in Missisauga! I also have relatives in Canada, but I haven't been up there in about 20 years...
