I thought to celebrate Canada Day, I’d share a few of my favourite signs that you might be Canadian (from standingonguard.com).
You might be Canadian if:
- You wonder why there isn’t a 5 dollar coin.
- You can sing O Canada in French and actually know what the words mean.
- You can do the hand actions to Sharon, Lois, and Bram’s “Skin-a-marinki-dinki-do”.
- You have maple syrup in your fridge at all times.
- You know the ingredients for poutine.
- You automatically read “Z” as “Zed” and don’t care if it doesn’t rhyme with “now I know my ABCs”.
- Even your kids know you take your coffee double-double at Tims.
- If someone accidentaly steps on your foot, you apologize.
- You know Casey and Finnegan are not a Celtic rock band or imported beer.
- You own at least one Roots sweatshirt.
- You find it difficult to explain “milk in a bag” to non-Canadians.
- You’ve designed a Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.
- You understand the phrase “Could you please pass me a serviette, I just dropped my poutine, on the chesterfield.”
- You eat chocolate bars, not candy bars.
- You drink pop, not soda
- You have Canadian tire money in your wallet right now.
- You wear a toque in winter.
- You know how to pronounce and spell “Saskatchewan”.
- “Eh” is an important part of your vocabulary.
Wishing all my fellow Canadians a happy Canada Day! And for my American peeps, getting all set for the 4th, you might be American if…this list makes no sense to you. 😉
With red and white celebrations all day, life really is a party!
