Lastly, The celebrations of Canada really show how great Canada is. Many celebrations aren't Canadian based holidays or festivals but we took the time to establish it and make it a celebration in Canada. Our national holidays generally mark religious, quas-religious, or patriotic occasions (Granatstein). The good thing is all Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and many more religions get to celebrate their own holidays and also be able to celebrate others beliefs. There is a huge list of celebrations such as New Years, Victoria Day, Empire Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day, Remembrance Day, Boxing Day, and Heritage Day (Granatstein). I've personally been to Caribana which is a celebration for all the Caribbean people in the world which happens in Toronto. All these celebrations are held in all provinces and territories. Quebec is the only place where one celebration is only celebrated there which is the Fête nationale du Quebec on June 24 (Granatstein).
I believe these celebrations should be valued and celebrated in Canada because it helps show the new generations and new comers to Canada the value and meaning of each celebration. I believe it gives others the knowledge to understand different cultures celebrations and how they celebrate it such as Caribana. I am Guyanese and Trinidadian, we celebrate Caribana to show appreciation of the different genres of music we create and the beautiful colours and costumes we wear to show how patriotic we are to our region. These celebrations are very important to me because they somehow give back whether its to the country, family, friends, cultures, and etc. Its a good reason to learn and be proud of how our country is so kind and willing to provide equal rights to every religious holiday.
