CRAB POTATO SALAD
Canada eh? Canada Day is right around the corner and so I’m sharing one of my favorite salads “My Crab Potato Salad”!
Hello everybody, I can’t believe we are about to hit Canada’s been 151 years soon, I feel so old… ha well i kinda do. I recently turned 30 something, but I might as well turned #151 because I was actually born on Canada Day, imagine them apples. So when everybody is Celebrating this holiday, it once again feels like everybody is celebrating my Birthday!! Lucky me eh?
Canada Day, means different things to different people. For me it has always meant school is over and summer is finally here! However as I get older, it’s now a time of reflection as well as a time where to get out and do some camping and be at one with nature. One thing for sure, is that this date is one where all Canadians come together, from sea to shining sea to Celebrate our nation’s Confederation. With FREE events happening Nationwide and all weekend long, you’re sure feel the spirit of it all.
So cool facts: On Canada Day, July 1, 1980, the English version of ‘O Canada!’ was proclaimed the National Anthem of Canada, 100 years after it’s debut performance in 1880 for St. Jean-Baptiste Day celebrations. Composed by Calixa Lavallée, French lyrics were written by Sir Adolphe-Basile Routhier. Many English versions followed, but the current ‘official’ lyrics are based on a version written in 1908 by Robert Stanley Weir for the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation in 1927. ‘O Canada’ was, by far, the best-known patriotic song in Canada by the time World War I broke out in 1914. Many other songs had all but disappeared, and the once-popular ‘Maple Leaf Forever’ is rarely heard these days.
