    I was totally unaware of its existence, so what I do on that day most likely consists of binge watching stuff on netflix.

    So uneventful. All the major parks here shoot fire works, and none of those little dinky fireworks the huge fancy ones.

    Honestly, there are probably more Canadians who care about the royal family than Brits. A lot of people in Britain are kinda just unenthused by the whole thing. Personally, I'd rather we never had a monarchy. We have a really good democratic system, so why would we want a completely undemocratic institution as well?
