Happy Canada Day!

You don't need to learn How To Be Canadian to participate, but it couldn't hurt. Pick a delicious dish from What To Eat and enjoy the classic Canadian, Please by honeychip and gunnarolla (gunnarolla previously).

Subpolar Express

The Canadian Pacific Christmas Train is a rolling holiday party for a cause. Two beautifully lit trains - on a US Route and a Canada route - cruise through the Midwest, stopping in 150 towns along the way to present live music and light shows while bringing donations of cash and food to local food banks.

My Royal Canadian Mint Coins

Taxali is not my original last name. It was changed 300 years ago to Taxali by a Maharaja in India. My ancestor invented a coin that was difficult to counterfeit and was subsequently knighted Taxali by the Maharaja.  It means, "Maker or Steward of The Mint".  How serendipitous!!  Here I am, 300 years later, honouring my ancestor's achievements and mine and my sister's family name. via [Drawn]

Canadian Juneteenth, aka "you don't really need a reason to go to the beach"

Today is a holiday across most of Canada, though there's little agreement as to why we get the day off. [more inside]

Happy 136th, Canada!

You say this coming, I'm sure. It's Canada's 136th birthday. Come up to Ottawa for the biggest, and I mean BIGGEST party of the year. Enjoy free live shows from The Guess Who, Leahy, Daniel Lanois or La Bottine Souriante, to name a few. Watch the parade. Oh, and fireworks. Be proud of the Maple Leaf!
