Happy 4th of July neighbour, eh!

July 4th is our neighbour's celebration of Independance.
I was born in the United States and am proud to be a citizen of both these fine countries.
Have a wonderful day and may we always remember those who gave up their lives so that we both, Canada and the United States have the freedoms we enjoy.
Happy 4th of July neighbour, eh!

Thanks Carolyn! Canada and US are the North American twins in my book. Yes, there's a border and different cultures and interests but I don't know of any other two countries that share the same friendship. My favorite tv series of all time is North of 60,... Canadian! Thank you and all of Canada.

Very thoughtful neighbour. And example of one who practice God's commandment about "Love Thy Neighbour".

Well said - I'm like you, born US, now in Canada. Wonderful similarities and differences - love them both!

Happy 4th to you, too!

Lida and I love the 4th almost as much as our neighours to the south.

We Canadians need to learn a little more from our neighbours about the joy of celebrating.

I believe like you do, Carolyn, when you are the citizen of two fine countries, you can be doubly grateful and celebrate the achievements of both. I like to celebrate the 4th and also the 14th of July (which is what they call Bastille’s day in the US – we call it the 14 Juillet or La FĂȘte Nationale). I am grateful that France came to help America during their war of Independence and that the US came to France’s help during two world wars, and the freedom and happiness enjoyed in both countries.

I get the 'eh' reference, thanks to a book I bought 2 years ago at Vancouver airport for our return flight to the UK: "How to be a Canadian". I don't know what Canadians think of it (I remember feeling rather huffy at a similar book some French friends gave me about how to be British), but it did make me smile and even laugh out loud (to my family's embarrassment).
