2 CANADA DAY

3 Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st across the country. July 1st marks the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada - that's the technical explanation, but Canada Day also means fireworks and the year's biggest national party. The Canada Day holiday is akin to the U.S. July 4th celebration but on a more Canadian scale.

4 NATIONAL SYMBOLS

5 The MAPLE LEAF is the characteristic leaf of the maple tree, and is an important national symbol of Canada. The BEAVER has played an important role in the history of Canada since the first explorers arrived here and started the fur trade. The beaver was made an official emblem of Canada on 24 March, 1975.

6 SCHOOL

7 Education in Canada is compulsory for children from 6 years old to at least 16 years old in the majority of Canadian provinces. In some provinces compulsory schooling starts at age five and in others it finishes at age 18. Generally, the standard of education in Canada is high. The school day in elementary schools is usually from 8.30am to 3 or 3.30pm, with an hour for lunch. There are also usually two 15-minute breaks (recesses) to allow students to let off steam between classes (and to allow teachers to find the aspirin ). Lessons in public schools are held from Mondays to Fridays and there are no lessons on Saturdays or Sundays.

8 SPORT

9 ICE HOCKEY is Canada's official winter sport, and LACROSSE is Canada's official summer sport, they are often used as national symbols of unity and pride.

It is unique in the world as a national, federal, provincial and municipal policing body.

16 CHRISTMAS

17 Christmas in Canada is celebrated in much the same way as it is in other Western countries. December 25th is the official holiday, with many people also taking time off on the afternoon of the 24th and Boxing Day on the 26th. Of course, Canada is a multicultural country, so many other holiday traditions aside from Christian ones are observed in December and throughout the year.

18 EASTER

19 Most everything is closed Easter Sunday; it's a popular day for attending church, getting together for a big family meal, and staging an Easter egg hunt. The children look for Easter eggs in the garden. Canadians give chocolate rabbits to each other.
