I do not live in Canada, so I respect that they are having a lot of fun commemorating the time when they have finally embraced their love for their country, but it would be just another day for me. From what I have heard, this is a significant event in Canada, and a lot of people participate in it.
This gives them a chance to have a lot of fun, even for just a day. A lot of them usually drink and eat their favorite food. It also gives them a chance to meet up with people and just bond with each other. There is no doubt that this is something that can be enjoyed by a lot of people who live in Canada.
