Happy Canada Day!
There is one holiday that sits in the heart of every Canadian, Canada Day. We wear our colors of freedom and peace with pride and joy. I’ve celebrated many of Canada’s birthdays overseas and brought the festivities along to each locale my feet have set foot in. We travel with an abundance of Canadian paraphernalia, as every Canadian does: flags, patches, buttons, hats, stickers and even fake tattoos. Why? It’s just what we do. We are happy people in a country of beauty and vast spaces. We spread our message of peace and tolerance with our gifts of adornment.
This year I decided to make our traditional Canada Day lunch, in Sardegna. Nothing says summer and good-times like a bottle of cold beer and a juicy homemade burger.
Today’s Lunch: Local Sardinian freshly made hamburgers, brewed in Sardegna Ichnusa beer, and locally grown veggies and cheese.
HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Canada is everywhere, right?
Happy Canada Day! Oddly enough we Americans celebrate the 4th of July the same way – hamburgers and beer, flags a patriotic colors. Yay for hamburgers and beer!
I am hungry now. We Kiwi/Aussies have a similar issue to what “Woman” mentioned – lots of people think we are one country. Grrrrrrrrrrrr
How could anyone confuse your accents?? They are so different.
It is great that you celebrated the day. Keep those flags waving girl !!
How many American’s still think Ireland is one country with no border 😦
And William and Kate are in Canada on a visit.
Isn’t it??? Hahahahahahaha 🙂
Yes, Woman. I do agree with you on that, separate us from the Americans. Do you know how many people here in Sardegna, think that Canada and America are the same country, use the same currecy etc…it’s sad. Ma … Happy Canada Day!

Ummmm…. for me personally the reason I’ve got a flag on almost all of my bags or wear my arctic fleece with the maple leaf on it is purely a lot more simple than your fantastic explaination (which just so you know I just might start using it in class) is that I am just tired of being asked if I am an American when I travel.
Most hilarious part is? When I meet some Americans who refuse to beleive I am Canadian just another American pretending to be Canadian!!! LOL!!!!
But as I said… I like your way of saying it better!!!
