Canadian Fancy Dress Ideas
Canada Day is held on the 2nd July every year, when the people at the top of the North American continent get to celebrate mostly that they are not Americans. (They will have their day on July 4th). There a good number of things for which Canada is famous Mounties and Maple Syrup spring to mind, but only one of those really offers a costume opportunity. Far better to look at a few famous Canadians in the Entertainment field and their claims to fame
