What does Canada do during Canada Day?

Nothing actually.

However, Canadians celebrate Canada Day by having picnics, BBQs, family reunions and gatherings of the clan, summer fun activities for families, and of course, regional parades, fairs and festivals.

Here in South Korea we Canadians get together to celebrate our National Day with steak cookouts and banquets.

If Canada Day falls on a Friday, then the American National Day, July the 4th, falls on the following Monday.

Look out because the combined holidays make an extra long weekend of summer fun and celebrations among the border communities of both our countries, as well as among North Americans working abroad.
