At this time of year, many public officials make their annual holiday addresses, and they often end up going viral online.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper delivered his annual holiday message Thursday, and highlighted large-scale Canadian events over the past year. Specifically, Harper mentioned Canada's success at the Vancouver Olympics, the G8/G20 summits and a visit from the Queen.
"It was a year during which Canada shone," he said. "We did ourselves proud."
