Canada Day is the biggest celebratory day in our nation (aside from the Raptors Parade a couple of weeks ago) and every year Canada lights up the sky with a fantastic fireworks display. Celebrating and enjoying time off is always necessary for your health, and Canada Day is the biggest weekend of the year to let your stress-free and enjoy.
National days around the world provide people with a basic human need… the need for belonging. Canada Day is not just about the land we sit on, and the date independence was given, it is also about the Canadians that became before us and belonging to a community. Having a sense of belonging in the surroundings you are in is vital to a person’s well being and health. Enjoy the festivities!
