Canada became a new federation by signing the Constitution Act on July 1, 1867. Canada Day is a national statutory holiday celebrated in all provinces and territories. It’s exciting how patriotic Canadians become when celebrating the birthday of Canada. Between home parties and community events, this Canadian holiday on July 1 seems to be getting bigger and more celebrated year after year.
Communities are already in the midst of planning family events including carnivals, parades, music, games, picnics and fireworks; inviting everyone to come together and participate in celebrating the birthday party of all birthday parties. Stores are beginning to fill with red and white items of clothing, accessories and patriotic flags for those wanting to take part in festivities, dress the part and show their enthusiasm. Websites can be found with new and interesting renditions of recipes, highlighting red and white versions of old favourites.
Whether thinking of having your own personal birthday party for Canada this year or if you sit on a community planning committee, we have collected some of our favourite red and white party ideas and made a Canada Day Pinterest board to inspire you. Always so much fun getting friends and family together and sharing your “I AM CANADIAN EH!” enthusiasm.
