Happy Canada Day!



In honour of Canada Day, I've switched over to wearing my fingerless gloves in the colours of the Canadian flag. July 1st is the only day of the year when we Canadians indulge in a small show of patriotism in our modest, understated way.


So in the spirit of the day's celebration, here's a little musical interlude that I know you will all enjoy!



And always remember:

Happy Canada Day, Debra! I'll be singing Oh, Canada all day long -- still, in my mind, one of the far more singable national anthems -- have a great one!

Nice patriotic post. I especially like the mountie chick...

Did Canada make up that day so they could try to overshadow our Independence Day? Kidding.

Professor Chaos said...

It's true. I do wanna be Canadian. French Canadian, preferably, but either type would be good.

Barfly said...

You know, I'm just giving you shit about being Canadian don't you? I even made fun of Canadians just a tiny bit on my post tonight. It's all good. The Canadians I've met on Caribbean vacations have all been great...and hardcore partiers...but then they met me. "I hate that American"...."but I love him too."

Rue said...

We have been celebrating all week. Why not? BBQ burgers and daiquiris tonight, because my family is classy like that.

Loved the video! I do find I have to apologize for Celine often though.
