Excerpt of "mrbrown goes to the NDP":
At least you will never get the date of our nation's birthday mixed up. The country does not let you forget it is coming.
First the flags go up then the music videos play again and again on the radio, tv and on the screens in the bus.
I mean, what other country celebrates National Day like we do? We have the marching, the mass displays and the fireworks, every single year. And we don't just have one big birthday party bash, we have at least seven major dress rehearsals before the actual day to make sure we get it right.
It's like you having seven birthday parties to practise for the main birthday party. You invite all your friends over for seven weekends to do a run through (but with 25-50% less fireworks) so that the actual party will be perfect.
