    Canada Day.....

    It's July 1st and if you're Canadian your mind is probably on BBQs,
    fireworks, warm weather and the long weekend. Maybe a few of you are
    thinking about visiting relatives or have no plans. If you think Canada Day
    is just about food, fireworks and a great big birthday party - think again.
    There's a lot more to it than that.

    Canada Day has been called a few names in the past. It used to be known as Dominion Day, First of July, Confederation Day and July the First. Canada wasn't born on July 1st, but the holiday celebrates the events that took place on this day. On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government. This Act stated "one Dominion under the name of Canada," which is why Canada Day was originally called Dominion Day.

    In 1982 Dominion Day changed to Canada Day after a vote from Parliament.
    Not everyone was happy about this change. Some people felt that a 115
    year-old part of Canadian heritage was lost. The new name stuck and every July 1st, Canadians celebrate Canada Day. If the first is on a Sunday, it's observed on the following day .

    In celebration, Canadians have parades, fireworks, picnics, face painting
    and food.
