Happy Canada Day!!
I can’t say how proud I am to be Canadian. I live day to day, not really focusing on where I am from. Most days I wake up, go to work, go to the gym, come home, make dinner, and watch some TV. Not really things you can call definitively Canadian. But every so often, I see things that remind me of where I come from. Like a backpack with the flag stitched on it, or someone with a “Canada” sweater, or the Molsen Canadian beer fridge commercial. All of a sudden, I feel this huge sense of pride come over me.
Every time I watch the Olympics, the anthem makes my throat tight with emotion. I love when we prove to other countries that we are contenders, not to be pushed aside or scoffed at. I love that the country comes together to celebrate as one.
Well, today is another day we can all celebrate together. Whether we are going camping, to the beach, downtown Toronto/Montreal/Vancouver, or just staying at home, we will all be watching fireworks and saluting to our great country (dare I say the best country) with a bottle of Molson Canadian.
Happy 147th Birthday, Canada! We love you.
