It's Canada's national day....(hence the name ;)). It's like Independance Day in the US and Bastille Day in France.

Some background: It was made to celebrate the one year anniversary of the formation of Canada in 1868 and was officially adopted as "Dominion Day" in 1878. In 1982, they decided to change the name to Canada Day and voila!

Cheers,
Katie ;)
