Happy Canada Day!

Today being the national holiday of our great northern neighbors, please play the music and read on!

My Dear Canadian Friends,

I wish you the happiest celebration of your national holiday!

While many of my countrymen may not know much about all that your country is and stands for, please understand that that there are those of us in America, that love and respect you, as good, friendly neighbors should.

So, enjoy your day! Celebrate with all your might, and know that some of us celebrate with you.

The Canadian National Anthem:

O Canada!

O Canada!

Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

En Francais!

O Canada!

Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux.

Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix.

Ton histoire est une épopée,
Des plus brillants exploits.

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

You're welcome, northern friends!

As you know, good ol' Gunfighter loves Canada and Canadians... well, most Canadians. I'm not so fond of Celine Dion or Morio Lemieux... but, that's a small sample for such a large country.

Bon fete!

Yay! Happy Canada Day one and all. You should have seen me yesterday. I was wearing red pants, a white t-shirt with a Canadian flag on it, a long-sleeved red shirt over it and white socks with the Canadian flag on them. I was disgusting in my patriotism for a country I don't even live in. Yet.
