Canada Day is celebrated because this is a holiday that had taken a long time before it was taken seriously by people. This was started back in the late 1800s, but people did not celebrate it because they were still under the British regime. They have also gone through a lot of wars and other problems. It was only in 1982 when people started taking this seriously.
A lot of people have started making an effort to create traditions that will be passed on to the next generations. People began to cook some barbecue and drink with their family members and friends on this day. This is the time when they can forget about all of their troubles, even for just a short while to commemorate the time when they have become free as a nation.
Canada Day is a national holiday that marks the union of the 3 colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single nation called Canada. It celebrates the Constitution Act of 1867. This happened on the 1st of July 1867.
The holiday was formerly called Dominion Day before it was later changed to Canada Day in 1982 which is the same year the Canada Act was passed. The holiday is celebrated all over Canada and in other parts of the world by Canadians. The holiday is celebrated July 1 annually.
