Happy Birthday, Silly Little Country

No, not the blog using that phrase in its name, but the actual Silly Little Country itself.
One silly aspect is the number of holidays that really relate to British stuff rather than anything we achieved or did.
We continue to celebrate Victoria Day (though we rumble occasionally about renaming it - in fact, maybe we have - we keep changing the lyrics to our national anthem). And Canada Day is fundamentally the celebration of the coming into effect of a British Act of Parliament.
Still we get to shoot off fireworks and not go to work for a day (well, depends on your job). So maybe it's silly but it's all right by me!
