Oh man, that is so cool. Thanks Taxy. It's amazing how much I don't know about my own country.

There is a little area of Canada in the South West corner where there is very little snow and a whole lot of rain. This is where I live. Today we have frost on the ground and sun in the sky. A perfect day but one you won't find anywhere else in this beautiful country this time of year!

Oh, dearie me; if it hasn't been already mentioned, make tourtiere, of course (and, yes I made mine and my husband (a not Canadian scarfed it down already, and my sisters have my recipe down pat). No, we haven't been Canadians for a few generations, but over the holidays, tourtiere rules!

We are also very good at picking on Toronto. In 1999 there was a big snow storm. The mayor of Toronto called in the army to help out. I don't think the rest of Canada will ever let them live that down.
