Canada Day

It is Canada Day here in the Great White North. I find that Canadians do not make such a big deal of their national holiday compared to other countries like the USA. I think it is likely the way we define ourselves. Americans define themselves as the best country or maybe the only country in the world. Canadians define themselves mostly as not being Americans. Even our national anthem calls us "the True North" indicating that we are not Americans.
