Independence Day in the U.S. is a day to celebrate the adoption of declaration of independence. On July 4th 1776 United States of America declared their independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Being the biggest birthday celebrated in the world every U.S. household today will be dressed in red, white, and blue. There will be celebrations around the country, with its holiday being in the middle of the summer and on a gorgeous day like today people will be enjoying picnics, BBQ’s (check out last week’s article on burgers), live music and of course fireworks!!
We want to wish our American neighbours a Happy and safe 4th of July!!
Of course we can’t forget Canada who celebrated another birthday this past Monday! On July 1st, 1867 the provinces and territories became a new federation with its own constitution by signing the Constitution Act (formerly known as the British North America Act). Most Canadian’s make it an extra-long weekend taking an extra day or two to flee to their cottages or enjoy some down time at home with friends and families. Like the U.S Canada Day is full of fireworks, BBQ’s, live music and of course, the cottage.
Wishing North America a wonderful year of health and wellbeing!
