You know you're from Canada when ... You only know three spices: salt, pepper and ketchup. You design your Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit. The mosquitoes have landing lights. You have more kilometres on your snow blower than your car. You have 10 favorite recipes for moose meat. Canadian Tire on any Saturday is busier than the toy stores at Christmas. You live in a house that has no front step, yet the door is one metre above ground. You've taken your kids trick-or-treating in a blizzard. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled in with snow. You think sexy lingerie is tube-socks and a flannel nightie with only 8 buttons. You owe more money on your snowmobile than your car. The local paper covers national and international headlines on 2 pages, but requires 6 pages for hockey. At least twice a year, the kitchen doubles as a meat processing plant. The most effective mosquito repellent is a shotgun. Your snowblower gets stuck on the roof. You think the start of deer season is a national holiday. You head south to go to your cottage. You frequently clean grease off your barbecue so the bears won't prowl on your deck. You know which leaves make good toilet paper. The major parish fund-raiser isn't bingo it's sausage making. You find -40C a little chilly. The trunk of your car doubles as a deep freeze. You attend a formal event in your best clothes, your finest jewelry and your Sorrels. You can play road hockey on skates. You know 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Construction. The municipality buys a Zamboni before a bus. You understand the Labatt Blue commercials. You perk up when you hear the theme from "Hockey Night in Canada". You actually get these jokes and forward them to all your Canadian friends I LOVE Canadian people and their culture.

Oh Canada O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free! From far and wide, O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. In French Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux, Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux! Car ton bras sait porter l'épée, Il sait porter la croix! Ton histoire est une épopée Des plus brillants exploits. Et ta valeur, de foi trempée, Protégera nos foyers et nos droits. Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

I really don't know much about all those generalisations, All I know is that I have never met a Canadian that I didn't like, and I have some relatives there somewhere. They seem like a very sane nation to me. And Canada is on my list of places to visit. We have quite a few Canadians that visit the Keys. But what Helena says about the cold was surprising.

As a Canadian, I do not know whether to blow you a kiss or shake you a fist LOL?!! You have managed to sum all of the ignorance shown to us "northerners" in one blog but hon, Hockey Night in Canada lost its theme over money and now life is no longer the same. And Gig do you know what the really funny thing is? Many of our southern neighbours think we are the land of ice, snow and eskimos (now known as Inuit).  The latter aside, we have growing deserts in my Province and temperatures in the west that never approach the lows of the US eastern seaboard and northeastern States.

Most importantly though they still respect the authority of the Queen not the president. But the downside side is they still decided to drive on the wrong side of the road and they won't let the us into our own country now unless they invite us in first.LOL.
