Happy Canada Day!

 

What do we celebrate on the Day of Canada?

On July 1, 1867, Canada became a self-governing dominion of Great Britain and a federation of four provinces: Nova Scotia; New Brunswick; Ontario; and Quebec. The anniversary of this date was called Dominion Day until 1982. Since 1983, July 1 has been officially known as Canada Day.

 

The truth is that we love Canada and Canadian people too.  It’s been found that Canada has some of the most prideful people in the world.

There is many reason  why should we love them and why  they can be proud of their nationality!

 

First, some interesting facts. Just for fun! 😉 

The beaver is the national animal of Canada

Animals have long been utilized as cultural symbols by people to represent countries and their citizens. These symbols are intended to bring about a sense of national community, which can inspire feelings of unity and patriotism. Due to nationalistic undertones, generally the animals chosen are often majestic, sometimes even mythical, which is why our buck-toothed, semi-aquatic rodent raises questions every now and then. So why exactly did Canada pick the beaver as its national symbol? Because of the fur trade.

 

Ogopogo is a mythical creature living in Okanagan Lake, British Columbia and is similar to the Loch Ness monster

Descriptions vary, but certain characteristics have been repeated through the decades: Ogopogo is green with a snakelike body about 25 meters long.  Some say its head looks like a horse, while others say that it’s reptilian or goat-like.

Canadian dollar

Their money is colorful and waterproof.  The currencies of 1 Canadian dollar are nicknamed loonies, from the name of the aquatic bird appearing on the reverse. Also, this name is often used referred to the monetary unit, in general. The 2-dollar coins, featuring a polar bear are called twonies or toonies, based on the the word loonie and the word two.

Canada have the highest population of wild bears

Of 25 000 polar bears, about 15 000 live in the northern parts of Canada. But it’s also home to large populations of black bears, grizzly bears, and kermode bears. The vast nature and area are perfect habitats for these majestic animals.

 

 

Worldwide known Products

The maple syrup

Maple syrup is graded according to the Canada, United States, or Vermont scales based on its density and translucency. Sucrose is the most prevalent sugar in maple syrup. In Canada, syrups must be made exclusively from maple sap to qualify as maple syrup and must also be at least 66 percent sugar.

Peanut butter 

In 1884 Marcellus Gilmore Edson of Canada patented peanut paste, the finished product from milling roasted peanuts between two heated surfaces. In 1895 Dr. John Harvey Kellogg patented a process for creating peanut butter from raw peanuts. He marketed it as a nutritious protein substitute for people who could hardly chew on solid food. In 1903, Dr. Ambrose Straub of St.Louis, Missouri, patented a peanut-butter-making machine.

“You’re Canadian?! No way, that’s awesome!”
