HAPPY CANADA DAY! Or, as you kids up there like to call it, Fête du Canada. Canada Day is a national holiday that, according to Wikipedia, has been technically celebrated since 1868, officially so since 1879, actually so in 1917 and every 10 years thereafter, but not widely so until the 1980’s (we got confused, too).
Some of us will celebrate this momentous occasion by taking a 2 1/2 hour drive up to Massachussetts to attend a wedding. Some of us will stay out in Long Island drinking lattes and flipping through back issues of Hot Hair Magazine (okay, we made that up, and we’re pretty sure the Lampshade Lady will weigh in later, kick our collective asses, and set the record straight!), and some of us will actually celebrate the day in “typical” Canadian fashion. Which would be…?
* one of us (me) was remiss in not wishing everyone Rabbit, Rabbit today, as well! I apologize and beg forgiveness.
