    No,I'm not Canadian.  I don't celebrate the founding of a country I am not a citizen of.  Otherwise I probably would never stop celebrating if I participated in the holidays of every country which isn't really a bad thing.

    I have been in Canada for almost twenty years and I am still learning what it means to be Canadian. Last year I went to my first Pow-wow ( … on-Reserve) at Dokis First Nation and since I had an amazing time, I am going again tomorrow for the week-end.

    Not particularly.  Here in upper middle Tennessee Canada is considered a foreign country.

    Oh, this is too funny non-Canadians answering this!  There are plenty of Canadians on hubpages to answer this question.

    We like to watch the local fireworks a little ways away from their site as the crowds and misquitoes can be a bit much.  I live in a condo, so no fireworks at home.  When I was a child, we loved sparklers.  There are some events  scheduled outside that I want to attend-hopefully the weather will cooperate!

    I really wish that I could just up and head on up there.  I've been to Canada. . . .for about thirty minutes one time - and that wasn't nearly enough Canada for me.
