Canada Day 2008
Annually, Canadians all over the World celebrate the unification of their country with Canada Day. They are celebrating the signing of the Constitution Act in 1867 which resulted in the joining of the colonies of British North America, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of 4 provinces. The day eventually came to be known as Canada Day on 27th October 1982, some 115 years later.
The celebrations for Canada Day take on a very similar format as those for American Independence Day and commonly include family entertainment, barbecues by the dozen, and of course, the evening is commonly brought to a close with some beautiful fireworks filling the night skies.
