Happy Canada Day....

Friday, July 01, 2005
...to all my favourite Canuck Chicks and Maple Leaf Mamas. (Yes, I'm spelling "favourite" with a "u" because it's Canada Day.) :-)

(If you're American, come back on Monday and I'll wish you a Happy 4th of July.)

Here are five Great Canadian ways to celebrate Canada Day.

1. Listen to some great Canadian music. Might I suggest that you tune into Alanis (unless you're mad at her because of the Starbucks snafu), Sarah M., Sarah H., Joni, Ron, Neil, and the Barenaked Ladies.

2. Enjoy some Great Canadian Beverages and try this trivia quiz from the CBC website.

3. Hit the great outdoors. Ideally, get thee to a beach, a forest, a lake, a stream, or some other place where you can drink in the wonders of the Canadian wilderness. I never feel more Canadian than when I'm away from it all ("it" being the the city and the regular grind).

4. Listen to CBC radio while you enjoy a Great Canadian barbecue or read (or write) the Great Canadian Novel.

5. Enjoy this blast from the past, courtesy of the CBC archives, and see what it was like to be a Canadian mom in generations past.
