    My most memorable #OhCanada Day was when I was in London England. I thought that it would be pretty subdued but so many people knew it was Canada Day and helped me celebrate! It was beautiful to have Canada celebrated by a different country and culture!

    My most memorable #OhCanada holiday was my first visit to Ottawa. It was the year the Queen visited and it was amazing to see her in person. I visited the art gallery and saw so much of Ottawa. It was beautiful and a perfect Canada Day!

    #OhCanadaHoliday I remember when I was working one summer out West I was able to climb a mountain on Canada Day. I really discovered how majestic our country is. Sometimes you just need a new perspective.

    My first Canada day after I became a Canadian citizen was my most memorable. My family celebrated with me by getting me a cake with a 1 on it to tease me. It was an amazing feeling to celebrate this amazing country and to know that I finally call it my country too!

    The first Canada Day after graduating from university, my friends and I made an impromptu trip to Ottawa to celebrate the big day. We had so much fun joining in on the celebrations with the other revelers on Parliament Hill, taking in the big concert and watching the fireworks display. What was supposed to be a day trip turned into an overnight one because we didn’t want to leave! Without a doubt, that was definitely my most memorable #OhCanada holiday!

    This year was my third year in Canada but it was my first time to celebrate Canada Day. So this is and will be the memorable one. My fiancé and I joined the Living Flag in Shaw Park. Afterwards, we went to Osborne for Street Festival and met few friends. To end our day, we went to The Forks to watch the fireworks. It was an awesome day!

    When I was working in Haiti, we got the day off on July 1st. We made a little gathering among Canadians and Haitians around the pool to celebrate Canada Day eating Kraft Dinner creole style. It was the most memorable Canada Day because I really did miss my home sweet home country :)

    The Canada Day before my father died in 1992 was the most memorable for me. We spent it visiting him in the hospital. My dad was a HUGE Canada Day fan and loved to BBQ on this special day. He obviously couldn’t be the “grill master” as he always was that year but we did bring a huge BBQ dinner to the hospital complete with Canadian flags to celebrate. Sadly, this was his last Canada Day but it is the one I remember the most. :)

    My most memorable oh canada day was when I was younger. My parents took us down to the waterfront to watch fire works. Friends and family met us down there and we got to play with sparklers, eat snow cones and watch the fireworks curled up in blankets on the grass.
