Canada Day is a time for Canadians around the world to honor their nation

Canadians will be celebrating the 144th anniversary of the unification of their nation on July 1. The holiday is commemorated with fireworks displays throughout the nation, and it is a time for families and friends to spend together. Canadian citizens who are working or living outside of the country during the holiday will send money to Canada to help their families pay for their festivities.

In 1867, Nova Scotia, the Province of Canada and New Brunswick were brought together under the Constitution Act, which also granted Canada some independence from their British rulers. On the centennial anniversary, Canada nationally observed the holiday for the first time, according to CanadaDay.ca. However, it did not become an official holiday until 1982, when the nation became fully independent.

Parades, sporting events and many other festivities take place on this summer day. People can send money online to their friends or relatives who live in Canada to help them pay for tickets to concerts and sport exhibitions. To express their patriotism, many Canadians will wear red and white clothes or the jerseys of their favorite hockey and Canadian football teams.

Canadian citizens who live in the London area in England can visit Trafalgar Square to take part in holiday celebrations. Canada House, the home of the High Commission of Canada, is located here and organized festivities with assistance from the Canadian community in the UK.

People gather in the square to honor Canada’s patriotic holiday with performances by Canadian musicians, Canadian food, and a street hockey tournament, CanadaDayLondon.com reports. Eight street hockey teams compete for the chance to win the Trafalgar Cup and the title of champion on the patriotic Canadian holiday. Friends and family members of the athletes may make online money transfers to help their relatives pay for their equipment and uniforms.

In Fort Erie, Ontario, and Buffalo, New York, Canadians and Americans participate in the Friendship Festival, which is a joint celebration of Independence Day and Canada Day. The festival’s website states that the celebration aims to promote unity between the neighboring countries. This year, the four day festival will take place between June 30 and July 3, and it will include free concerts, games and other fun activities for the whole family.
