Canada Day falls on a Wednesday this year, which makes it pretty hard to create a long weekend out of it. I suppose you could just take the entire week off. I imagine that quite a few people have done just that.
It didn’t seem much like Canada Day this year. I slept through half the day’s celebrations. The weather didn’t really look all that great to begin with, so I’m not sure that I would have gone to anything anyway. Tonight, the fireworks are still a go, which will provide a nice break from the routine of night shift.
I can remember some really great Canada Days in years gone by.
This just wasn’t one of them.
