  •  National Anthems usually consists the greatness of the country and lyrics of patriotism. And is important part of the country itself. When we look at their national anthems, we can know their religions, geographic facts, what kinds of plants and animals are famous, and basic informations about them. Yet, we know such little about songs that officially represents the country. So, I'm about to introduce fascinating songs that are in North Amercia.


     1. Canada 🍁 

     Canada is a country in the northern part of North America and use English and French as official languages. Since French was one of the mostly used languages, original version of the song was made by French when Adolph-Basile Routheir of Quebeck wrote lyrics in french and Calixa Lavallee wrote the song in 1880. It was only for the people who are French Canadian. Beacuse of the fact that it was only for some people and not for everyone, it was changed into some other version that we know now. But even before being official song for Canada, it was one of the songs usually sang at important occasions. And in 1939, in the Memorial day, it was played at Ottawa like a national anthem. Since the King george Ⅵ didn't said anything about it, it was kind of approved as the offical song. After that, in 1976 it was played in the Montrial Olympics. Finally, exactly a century after it was written, in 1980, was appointed as the national anthem.


    <🍁O Canada🍁>

    O Canada

    Our home and native land

    True patriot love in all of us command

    With glowing hearts we see thee (thee is an old English expresion which means `you') rise

    The true north strong and free ---Here, we can know that Canada is in the North 

    From far and wide, O Canada ---Here, we can know in comparison, it's bigger than most countries

    We stand on guard for thee

    God keep our land glorious and free ---Here, we can know Canada is not colonized

    O Canada we stand on guard for thee

    O Canada we stand on guard for thee


     When we hear the song, it has march like feeling in front, and then have chorus singing in a grand way.

    Personally I think it's cheerful and enjoyable. The lyrics don't have any heavy meaning words and it also gives me patriotic feelings. Thanks for reading, see you next time with the Republic of Cuba. Good Bye!
