Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day Everyone! :)

For those of you outside Canada, HERE is some info on what Canada Day is all about.

Now for something a tad amusing:

You Know You're Canadian if...  
You know Toronto is not a province
You get milk in plastic bags
You don't buy maple syrup at the airport
You go to Niagara Falls and scoff at how pathetic the American Falls are
You've plugged a car in overnight
You design your kid's Hallowe'en costume to fit over a snowsuit
Driving is better in the winter because then the potholes are filled with snow
You can play road hockey on skates
Your municipality buys a Zamboni before it buys a bus
Teenagers can legally drink
You only burn your bra when you're out of wood
You measure distance in hours
You yell "Patio Weather!" when the temperature rises to 0.
You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.
There are seven empty cars running in the parking lot of your neighbourhood Tim Horton's at any given time.
Summertime is when you switch your toque for a ballcap (with a Canadian beer logo on it)
You have a bumper sticker that says "If you're Canadian show me your Beaver"
You own an ice auger
You have a "good" parka for formal occassions
The trunk of your car has doubled as a deep freeze
You have more than $20 in Canadian Tire money
You owe more money on your snowmobile than your car
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.
You can play road hockey on skates.
You know 4 seasons: Winter, Still Winter, Almost Winter, and Construction.
You understand the Labatt Blue commercials.

Cold is relative...
