*SENTENCE COMBINATION*

Learning to combine ideas into more complex sentences is an important writing skill. There are many ways to do this. Try to combine the following three sentences. Do not use a semi-colon.

Sentence 1: Canada Day fell on a Friday this year.
Sentence 2: The fireworks display was spectacular, but it started very late because of the long daylight hours.
Sentence 3: The July 1st holiday was a great way to start the new month.
