It's Canada Day today, and we're celebrating 150 years! Woohoo! \:D/

I could have used 150 instead of sesquicentennial in the title, but I thought this sounded more intriguing. ;) It's also a very Canadian story for me of when I first became enamored with this amazing word. It was through a movie that was filmed in Canada and starred one of my favourite Canadian actors, Yannick Bisson (honestly, the main reason I watched the movie), but of course, in true Canadian fashion, the film took place in a small town in the US, and that town was celebrating it's sesquicentennial. Good times! :lol:

To my fellow Canadians, have a happy Canada Day. \:D/

To all others, most of you get to celebrate in a few days yourselves, so enjoy anyway. ;) You're welcome for insulin and snowmobiles!

We do have quite a few Canadian members. Some of them have just abandoned us. :noway:

Also, I like how your avatar and post combine to make it look like that's you celebrating Canada Day. O:)

Alex Trebek wore his 150 ambassador jersey on Jeopardy and said Canadians and Americans should combine our celebrations into one big four day party. \:D/

Haha, that would be quite the celebration! :lol: I do know people who live close to the border who go across to watch 4th of July fireworks, so I guess a few people informally kind of do that, but to officially do such a thing would be interesting!
