There was a time when Canada Day was not as widely celebrated as it is being celebrated right now. Over the years, the Canadians decided that they are going to pay more attention to the holiday. The primary purpose of this is to make Canadians remember the things that they had gone through before they started to reach the freedom that they feel they deserve.
Do take note that not all Canadians feel this way. Some may think that they are still British citizens, so they do not celebrate this holiday that much. This used to be called Dominion Day, but over the years, it has managed to become more popular.
Canada Day is celebrated annually on July 1. It is a day that marks the anniversary of the creation of Canada. It is the day The British North America Act which is now known as Constitution Act was enacted. Canadians all over the world set this day aside every year, to celebrate this anniversary.
The celebrations go on all day and beyond in certain regions. Activities range from fireworks, barbecues, dancing, citizenship ceremonies, parades, Canadians all dressed in their national customs and other many other events takes place on the anniversary day.
