  • We don't celebrate Canada Day or Cinco De Mayo. We don't do St. Patricks day either for that matter. What you celebrate is usually more about culture. Just like how many of you outside of South Central Texas celebrate "Battle of the Flowers"? Kids are out of school here for it. BTW BOTF memorializes the men lost at the Alamo in efforts to secure Texas' independance from Mexico. The Alamo may mean little to nothing to you..but for me I cannot look at the Alamo without tears. It is a powerful experience for me. Is it because I love history? Is it because it is my heritage? Perhaps it is a bit of all of it.
    People need to learn to let this kind of stuff go. Take care of yourselves and your families and let other do as they will. Keep your familiy hisoties alive for your children so they can do the same.

  • Canada Day is to Canadians what July 4th is to us.
