You Know You're Canadian When...
1) You have to rush home from dinner with family or friends to watch the hockey game, because you just cant miss that first puck drop.
2) During every game you MUST where the team jersey or they will definitly lose (there must be a lot of people forgetting to wear their Leaf jerseys, because they are sucking)
3) You can't live without Tim Hortons
4) You will drive through 3 feet of snow, freezing rain and a blizzard to get to Tim's, because as you know, you cant live without it.
5) You spend hours and hours shoveling a driveway, only to have a snowplow go by and cover half of it, and all you do is shake your head and keep shoveling.
6) You actually find it entertaining watching people do a Polar Bear Plunge. (For those of you who don't know what that is, they cut a hole in some ice of a frozen lake and people jump in. Some wear costumes, some wear speedos)

That's all I've got! I'd love to hear what other people come up with!

Ok I'm not from Canada but my Great Grandma was does that count? I used to live across the river from Sarnia, Ontario. that ought to go for something :) I still throw an ah (eh) at the end of my sentences once in awhile and whenever I say "wide" the people here think I want to know how "white" it is. But I still don't know what Tim Hortons is.

haha, Tim Hortons is like Dunkin Donuts... coffee and donuts and soups and sandwhiches. You dont go anywhere in Canada without seeing a Tims. Where Im from we have the most Tims in one town :wink:
Heres a commercial.

Drive thru donuts?! I'm moving to Canada. We are lucky to get a stale Krispy Kream at the gas station. The closest decent kruller is 30 miles away. :(
