Explaining Canada Day to America

Today is Canada Day! In this humorous video, a Canadian explains to his neighbor what Canada has to celebrate. The American talks about celebration, too, but neither one go into any national history at all. Canada Day commemorates the day in 1867 that the three separate colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick united into a single dominion called Canada. While there were other notable dates in Canada's formation as a nation, July first is the national day of celebration. (via Bits and Pieces)
