It is Monday and this is the real holiday of sorts. I am wondering whether today is a holiday in Canada or whether they got their holiday last week. Somehow it sticks in my mind that they get their holidays a week early. I am wondering at what point I became aware of Canadian holidays. Was it when I spent summer vacations in Goderich? Or was it later when Canadian holidays became a confusing point in time for me such that I never really understood when they were. It was as if an entire Country were trying to confuse me.
