Day 16 – National Celebrations
Today is a very special day in the country! It’s a major national holiday and everyone is celebrating! Scroll down to learn more about the national holiday in your country.
Canada – The national day in Canada is called ‘Canada Day.’ It is celebrated on 1 July every year. People in Canada like to celebrate the holiday by getting together with friends, having a meal and setting off fireworks. People usually eat food from the barbecue on Canada Day. Some of the most popular foods are hot dogs, hamburgers, poutine (fries with gravy and cheese), and nachos.
Imagine that you are visiting on the national holiday of your chosen country. On your blog tell us what you would eat, see and do on that day.
What I would eat is poutine, hot dogs, and nachos, and what I would do is watch the fireworks relax, and eat more food.
Create a brand new public holiday for the country. Use your creativity to come up with a name for the holiday and a short description of how people in the country celebrate the holiday. Do they all get the day off? Do they eat special foods or go to special events to mark the day?
My holiday would be called relaxing day on this day everybody would get the day off and they would eat whatever they wanted for free and they would be able to go to the spa also all the kids get to go to rainbows end, go cart racing, and wherever else they would like to go for free. Everyone would also be able to stay in a 5 star hotel room for free only for one night and they get room service.
