Happy Canada Day! – Oh Canada, We Stand on Guard for Thee

Canada Day flag

 

 

I don’t usually post twice in a day, but given that Sundays are my book review days and today is the day we celebrate Canada’s 151st birthday I want to wish my beautiful country a Happy Birthday and pay tribute to my country especially in these hard times across the world, reminding me how grateful I am to be a free Canadian. Never in my life have the lyrics to our anthem touched me so deeply as it does today.

 

Canadian Flag

 

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all of us command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

 

Anthem lyrics from https://www.canada.ca/en/canadian-heritage/services/anthems-canada.html

 

Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends! <3

  1. A very Happy Birthday to Canada! 🇨🇦 Will you be celebrating at all? Are there national and local parties happening today? Personally it my husband’s and mine wedding anniversary so just starting the day with a special breakfast and presents outside … in the shade! Sooo tropical at the moment!

    1. Happy Anniversary Annika! And oh yes, there are so many things going on in the city and across the country. I have been up north in cottage country with family all weekend! Sunning and boating and bbqing – the Canadian way! 🙂 xxx

  2. Happy Canada Day, my sparkly buddy for you all. <3 xXx <3

    1. Thank you my Lovely from across the pond 🙂 <3 xoxo

    1. Thank you Jane. 😉

  3. Congratulations Canada–a great country with wonderful people! 💖 Next June we will spend a couple weeks or three in the center, maybe Manitoba or a little east/west or further north of there. Us and our dog Max.😎

    1. Thanks John. Welcome aboard, love to have you over 🙂

  4. Happy Canada day, Debby! ♥

    1. Thanks so much Olga! <3

  5. Happy Birthday to Canada, Debby. And you’re right, wonderful words that take on special meaning these days. I love the use of “heart” in the anthem. 🙂 Enjoy your celebrations. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Diana. I’ve been enjoying a weekend getaway up north to cottage country with family 🙂

  6. Hi Debby – glad to see you’re away with family and friends – Happy Canada Day from an adopted Canadian for now! We’re muddled here – lots going on … waiting for family, and foals to be born!, while tomorrow we go for a picnic lunch overlooking the inlet – so generally life carries on! Happy days ahead … cheers Hilary

    1. Thank you so much Hugh, it was a lovely day. And yay for you getting near completion on your next book! 🙂 <3

  10. Happy Canada Day (a hair late)! I count you and a host of bloggers and other friends as my wonderful friends from Canada! Hope it was a wonderful celebration. Our Independence Day is July 4th I’m sure you are aware. We could be more patriotic and it ends up being all about fireworks, legal and illegal!

    1. Thanks Terri. We had a wonderful celebration up in cottage country. We also have fireworks at our big parks, but here it’s not so much a big thing with fireworks. 🙂

  11. Happy Canada Day, Sis. I’m late here but posted a Canadian birthday message on Facebook on Friday. Jealous, you know. LOL! 😀

    1. Lol Sis. And you aren’t late, thoughts always count. And yes, I know your heart. <3 xx

  12. Belated Happy Canada day. I hold July 1st in high esteem for many reasons, and Canada is one of them. Be proud of your nation and enjoy.
    <3

    1. Thank you so much Christoph. So often we take things for granted, like our freedoms. This year’s celebration was more like an awakening with a double dose of gratitude. 🙂 <3

    1. Thanks Jennie. 🙂

  13. I hope you had a wonderful and fun celebration, Debby. Happy belated Canada Day!🌼

    1. Hi Lauren. Thank you so much. It was a lovely celebration. 🙂

  14. You are very fortunate to live in such a lovely country, Debby.

    1. Thank you Robbie. I count my blessings every day. 🙂

  15. A little bit late but I too am a proud Canadian!

    1. Of course you are Carol. And never too late. <3

  16. Sorry I am a little behind on posts, Debby. Love Canada’s anthem. Sing along when I hear it. Know it by heart like USA’s. Love Canada. We have been to Montreal, Toronto and Quebec City and of course to Niagra Falls Canadian side. Love it all! Hugs & love to you. Xx

    1. Thanks for dropping by Janice and leaving your kind words. Never apologize for being late to read a blog, lol. We are all so busy, and the bog isn’t going anywhere. We get there when we get there. <3 xo

  17. Happy belated Canada Day, Debby! You have a country to be proud of! And, I hope to visit it again in August.

    1. Thank you so much Liesbet. And wow, are you coming over for real? Will you be on the west coast or coming to Toronto???? 🙂

      1. West coast. Otherwise, I would have let you know privately already. 🙂

        1. I figured! But thought it was worth asking anyway. 🙂
