Canadian Independance Day or more commonly known as Canada Day is celebrated just 3 days before the American Independance Day which hopefully will be celebrated tommorow in the U.S.. Was an eventful day for me out here had alot of things that i did through out going to the airport droping a friend off seeing him off. But the thing is it wasn't as plain or as simple as that I had a whole week full of events and such. its of a day back we celebrated Canada Day saw a huge helicopter a few days back couldn't take a picture though but yeah it was definately military bought for the sole purpose of entertainment. In the morning I was just strolling out on the road people were dressed up in white & red well if not white but they all were in red i felt I was the only one left outstanding from the crowd Na just kidding they all were just jealous that i had a red icesickle in my hand :D. Walking down further saw a whole lot of people gather up for a party as it looked and sounded tempting one of my friends invited me to it but yeah i always have something better to do no matter what heard he had a great time told me that they had all kinds of eatables out there
Anyways In the evening we went out at the water front and checked out and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about seems to me they were all there for the fireworks and guess what it only lasted for like 10 minutes but yeah ("The whole crowd was Pumped :P(you wish)") the only one who was cheering was our group. And the reason for this was that they don't allow you to use firecrackers at most of the places around halifax concerned about the people's safety. I have seen better in India on Diwali even kids are professionals firing up a cracker and the session lasts through out the day and in the evening the whole cloud is soo polluted that the only thing you can smell is burnt matches and gun powder. But yeah i am happy that they atleast don't waste soo much money here even though this isn't a poverty stricken nation. I mean for God sakes there are people dying in your country they could give that money away as donation maybe it will do someone some good. Its like blowing your money off in smoke for no reason.
