The process of moving can be a chore for many of us.

Nevertheless, in the Canadian province of Quebec, there is a day dedicated to moving.

Moving Day takes place on July 1, the same day as the national holiday, Canada Day.

According to Wikipedia, the tradition began in 1750, and each year on this day large numbers of people and trucks can be seen moving belongings from one place to another.
