Americans are not Canadians, but do look quite similar.
Today is July 1st - known here as Canada Day. It is Canada's 143rd birthday but I did not bake a cake.
Today is July 1st - also known as the day I permanently moved to Canada. That was in 2000. It my 10th birthday in Canada and I did not bake a cake, although 10 candles would fit more easily than 143.
I did not officially become a citizen of Canada till several years later.
I am also still a U.S. citizen. Does that make me both a moth and a butterfly?
Our money is much more colourful (yes, we add u's in the middle of our words, like the British) than what is printed in the States, and we do not have $1.00 bills.
We do have a $1.00 coin with a loon on one side - this is called a "loonie"
We also have a $2.00 coin called... wait for it.... a "two-nie" which carries a picture of a polar bear.
Yes, we have polar bears in Canada, but I've never gone North to see them.
I do however often see deer, coyotes, martens, jack-rabbits, foxes and various other critters in my yard.
Today I expect I might see some of these as we spend the day in our nearby National Park:
