July, 2022 - Canada Day and Family
Canada Day Family Traditions
Canada Day was always special for me as a child growing up in our nation’s capital. Being from an immigrant family, I loved that we had a day to celebrate our home and our dual identities as Chinese-Canadians.
Every July 1st, my brother and I looked forward to spending the day off from school, eating maple syrup candies and bouncing around our parents like a pair of excited monkeys. And it was no wonder why: Canada Day was like one big birthday party – and everyone was invited.
