Canada's most important holiday is just around the corner: Canada Day.

- Remembrance Day - November 11th       
The day of the truce, which ended the First World War in 1918.

Christmas-Christmas Day - December 25th

-Boxing Day - December 26th
A day to recover from the festivities and to go on "after Christmas bargain hunting". Here in the malls and shopping centers bustle. A "boxing" at the counter.

These days are Canada's most important national holidays. In addition, there are other regional holidays in the provinces and territories that are not celebrated throughout the country. For example, Nunavut Day, National Aboriginal Day, Louis Riel Day, St Patrick's Day or St-Jean Baptiste.

We Canadians are not quite as spoiled as our German friends, but still, an acceptable number comes together.

We wish our readers a nice and relaxing holiday!

Every year Canada Day reminds us of the greatness and beauty of our wonderful country. Here are some interesting facts surrounding this national holiday: As one important milestone for Canada's independence, Canada Day celebrates the joining on July 1, 1867, of the colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a wider British federation of four provinces. The holiday was officially given statutory value in 1879 and was first named Dominion Day.
FATHER'S DAY – an honor to our fathers!
FATHER'S DAY – an honor to our fathers!

Some facts about Father's Day for everyone who has always wondered where this tradition actually comes from. 
Father's Day is a relatively young holiday. That is why the rituals vary from region to region and from family to family. Many children give their fathers little gifts on Father's Day. The children no longer living with their parents, visit the father, or call him. In some cultures, however, large celebrations in honor of the fathers can be held in a large family.

It doesn't matter that something big is organized on Mother's Day. The main thing is that they think of you and feel loved. It doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be right next to each other, especially in this unusual COVID-19 times. You are always connected in the heart!
