Canada Day is celebrated because this is a holiday that had taken a long time before it was taken seriously by people. This was started back in the late 1800s, but people did not celebrate it because they were still under the British regime. They have also gone through a lot of wars and other problems. It was only in 1982 when people started taking this seriously.

A lot of people have started making an effort to create traditions that will be passed on to the next generations. People began to cook some barbecue and drink with their family members and friends on this day. This is the time when they can forget about all of their troubles, even for just a short while to commemorate the time when they have become free as a nation.
