Strange Canadian Facts for Canada Day
July 1, 2010 at 10:46 am 0

Today, July 1st, is Canada Day in our home and native land. Generally, Canadian's have a covert kind of patriotism. We're not the flag wearing, loud national anthem kind of people that our neighbours to the South tend to be. We're more the strong and silent type. But we also have a very bizarre sense of humour. So, to celebrate Canada Day here are some strange and wonderful Canadian Facts. Our national animal is a beaver, which is also a Canadian (not so polite) nickname for vagina. Our $1 coin is called a "loonie" because it has a picture of a loon on it. Our $2 coin is called a "toonie" because....no really good reason. The woolen hats everyone wears is called a "toque". See, everyone thinks Canadian's are softies with left leaning hearts...but really it's all the fresh air that makes us wacky! Happy Canada Day everyone!
