Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day! Happy Canada Day!

Canada Day is hands-down our favorite holiday of the year. Probably because its stress-free without huge expectations, or shopping lists, or giant feasts to prepare—the focus is instead on a fun day out with the family. It’s also a great way to really begin and embrace the summer season: hot weather, lazy days on the beach or the lake, playing outside til dark, barbecues in the backyard, reading in the hammock and going barefoot.

It’s really the simple pleasures in life that we cherish and remember, isn’t it?

We put on our red and white gear and grab anything with the Canadian flag on it to show our patriotism- hats, mini flags, t-shirts, blankets, etc. We gather with family for a bbq and hit the local community activities—perhaps for sack races, live music, crafts, a giant birthday cake. The kids love it when the local fires truck come out to cool everyone down with a giant water blast! It’s a late night for everyone to be dazzled by the huge fireworks finale once the sun goes down!
