Actually, this year Canada Day is July 2! You see, when Canada Day was first made a holiday, the government was more Christian, and didn't want anything to interfere with people going to church and celebrating the Lord's Day. So, according to our law, Canada Day is on July 1, except when July 1 falls on a Sunday. In those years, Canada Day is actually to be observed on Monday, July 2! So, that is why this year, Canada Day is actually not July 1! Sadly, most people, even Canadians are not aware of this, or of the reason for it, and assume that Canada Day is always July 1. So, to all the other Canadians out there, happy Canada Day on Monday July 2! And yes, I am Canadian.
