Love that we celebrate these days so close together. Canada Day was yesterday, July 1 and “celebrates the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada.” (from https://www.officeholidays.com/holidays/canada/canada-day)
I am privileged to have quite a few friends who live in Canada and am happy to support their celebration.
The 4th of July, celebrates the signing of the US Declaration of Independence which begins: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness.” When will we live up to these stirring words?
In honor of these two special days, I’m participating in NNLightsbookheaven.com Canada/America Bookish Mini Event. It’s only 4 days and began yesterday, July 1. It runs through July 4th.
I encourage you to stop by the blog and say hi. Besides reading about my book, if you sign up, you’ll be entered to win one e-copy of each of the approximately twenty participating author’s books. You’ll have enough reading for the rest of the summer and maybe into the early fall. All for FREE!
In the meantime, how are things where you live? Getting pretty grim in Texas, and still some folks deny we have a problem. How are you celebrating the holidays? Love to hear from you. Be safe out there, friends.
