I am now celebrating several select United States Holiday's

I have decided that here in Halifax, Nova Scotia that since we are pretty close geographically to the United States that I have decided to start celebrating select USA Holidays here in Canada. 

My personal favorite that I will now get is Arbor Day.

Arbor Day is a State Holiday in Nebraska that will now be observing here in Halifax and was  on April 28 this year and I missed it. I will be looking forward to Arbor Day 2018 next year to get started.

Today is also a Holiday in the United States in Rhode Island and it is Victory Day.

Even though Canada probably did all the work and really won whatever Victory they are referencing in Rhode Island I will be celebrating Victory Day will them today in Rhode Island.

It's super great to have new Holidays now here in Nova Scotia from the United States for myself to celebrate to go along with our regular Nova Scotia and Canada Holidays.

This will make for a busy year of great Holiday fun having both Canada and United States Holidays here in Nova Scotia at my house.
