Happy Birthday, Canada!

Oh Canada, today you turn 149.

And I have to say–you age pretty well.



Fun Canadian Fact: So the story goes that the name “Canada” is sort of based on a misunderstanding. When the Europeans sailed over and talked to the indigenous people they kept hearing the word “kanata” which means “village” or “settlement.” But I guess they heard a “d” somewhere in there instead of a “t” and so the name “Canada” was born.
