I want to do something big for Canada Day this year as it's a long weekend in Britain! I'll go to the import store up in Stirling and buy bottles of Moosehead Beer, and make good' ole poutine and wear my Roots Canada stuff lol.

Last year Canada day fell on a work day, and my colleagues gave me Moosehead Beer, Reeses's Peanut Putter Cups and a wee Canadian flag to mark the occassion. :)

Humm.. Have never thought to celebrade Canada Day when abroad... am a BAD CANUCK. Seriously though, never gave it a thought. Being an internationalist, I don't much like it when other countries wave their flags about and tell everyone how great they are, don't care to do it myself.

Also, I don't like hot dogs :wink:

I wish i could celebrate it but i'll probably be stuck in a field somewhere with my rifle in my hand, rain soaked and waiting for " the enemy" to attack. But you all have a good time.

At home in Ipswich at the moment just back from 3 weeks on exercise. My regiment is preparing to deploy to Afghanistan so we are doing loads of training exercises.

When I lived in Japan, I used to have a BBQ, light off some fireworks and drink whatever Canadian beer I could find at Costco for July 1st. I used to get a lot of care packages from home, so myself and the other Canucks in my area would watch a hockey game (or even play street hockey) and just celebrate being Canucks.

The Embassy used to have a big, free shindig with Canadian beer, food, music, etc, but it was usually during the week and I never got a chance to go... :cry:

Well, I may be heading overseas before then but if I'm still in the US I'll do the same as last year. Park my ass on a lawn chair with a cooler full of Canadian beer, fly my flag and listen to some Hip. Last year, the entire family stopped by and got shit-faced. They were still hung-over by the 4th of July which made it bittersweet!

Here's my flag flying down at my in-laws last year!

FYI:

The Dutch Celebrate Canada Day. No Joke. Which is why some of my friends who are seeing Europe right now, are gonna spend Canada Day in Amsterdam......

Another FYI:

Amsterdam IS the Capital, but The Hague is the seat of Government. Those silly Dutch....

In a Few years, I expect to spend Canada Day in the Netherlands aswell....

But in the Netherlands, it is more than acceptable to do that!!! :wink:

I'm wanting to throw a bash for Canada Day at my place, but I'm curious as to how many people will really want to during the World Cup! Still undecided.
