Maple Syrup and Beavers

This post is all  about my home, Canada! In case some of you didn't know I'm a Canadian, and I love it!

The truth about "eh!"...
Some Canadian stereotypes revealed

1. We all play hockey.
Not all of us. Hockey is Canada's sport, but we don't all play hockey. A lot of us do, but not as many as you think.

2. We all speak French.
This is not true.Only in Quebec do most people speak French. At least I think so. Please  correct me if I'm wrong.

3. We say "aboot".
WHAT?!?! We do not say "aboot".

4. We say "eh" a lot.
I do, but not the whole of Canada.

5. We live off maple syrup and in igloos.
People don't read enough. I do love maple syrup on my pancakes, but that's about it. And I've never even SEEN an igloo.

Some beautiful things about Canada...

1. Niagara Falls
 
One of the biggest waterfalls in the world! An extraordinary sight.
 
 
2. The Anne of Green Gables House
 
 
 
This is the house inspired by Anne of Green Gables. Located in Prince Edward Island, it is a beautiful place to visit.
 
 
3. The Rockies
 
An extraordinary place to live.
 
 
4. Aurora Borealis
 

If there's one thing you have to see in your life, it's the Northern Lights. Otherwise known as The Dance of the Dead Men or The Aurora Borealis, this supernatural phenomenon is incredible. Be awed next time you head to northern Canada and watch the mesmerising colours haunt your soul.

5. The Plains of Abraham

 
One of my favourite places on this Earth, this legendary battle field is a beautiful plain of rolling green grass hills and extraordinary sites.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about Canada!

  2. I love Canada! I've been there about three to four times before, and my family might go on a trip there during the holidays. I want to see the Anne of Green Gables House too! I'm not sure about the French speaking part. I've been to Toronto (which my uncle said was close to Ontario) and they speak English there. But yeah, I think maybe just Ontario might speak French... And I don't believe in the maple syrup/igloo stereotype. That what happens here in Alaska. "We drive snow mobiles to work and trap for seals to makes coats..."

  3. It looks like an amazing place to live. You are so lucky! I've always wanted to visit Canada, especially P.E. Island, where most of Lucy Maude Montgomery's stories take place. And seeing the Northern Lights is definitely on my bucket list!
