About a year ago a ship arrived carrying a big group of people. They spoke a strange language and wore strange clothes. We were scared at first, but not any more. We even helped them to plant crops and hunt on our land. They had a big feast to celebrate the harvest and they invited us.
A traditional celebration in my country is Canada Day. This celebrates the day that Canada became a nation. Every year on July 1st people celebrate with their friends and family with picnics, barbecues, fireworks, parades and more. It is a national holiday so schools and businesses close for the day.
