Hello Beauties,


Today’s post is a little different than usual but I am a proud Canadian and want to share my love for my country!

I’ll be spending the long weekend by the beach with friends, sipping sangria poolside, awing at fireworks & a family BBQ on Monday! 

In honour of Canada Day I’ll be sharing some fun facts and information, so keep on reading!

Here a few DIY’s I did for the occasion! 

The 411 on Canada 

→ we are the second largest country in the world

→ we have 6 different time zones

→ largest supplier of oil

→ we have over 3000 lakes

→ second to Paris, Montreal Quebec is the largest speaking French city in the world

→ home to 15, 000 + polar bears 

→ our drinking age is 19

→ winters can be as cold as -40 C in some parts of the country

Canadian Slang

Eh (probably the most popular)

Sorry (It’s not slang but we really do say Sorry a lot, hahah) 

Loonie/Toonie (short form for our $1 and $2 coin)

Timmies (short form for Tim Hortons, our coffee shop found at every corner of Canada)

Double Double (slang used at Timmies when asking for a coffee with 2 sugars & 2 milks)

The 6 (refers to the city of Toronto)

Two-Four (a term used when buying a case of 24 bottles of beer)

Mickey (a 375 ml bottle of liquor) 

Canuck (nickname for a Canadian)

Pop (we don’t say soda)

Pencil Crayons (you Americans probably say “Coloured Pencils”)

Beaut/Beauty (an expression used for something/someone that was done well)

Bud (we basically call everyone bud)

How to be a Canadian

→ wear a toque (a knitted winter hat)

→ continuously say “sorry” “pardon?” and “eh”

→ our diet consists of: bacon, poutine, maple syrup, smarties, double doubles and ketchup chips

→ religiously watch “Hockey Night In Canada” every Saturday night

→ play the Don Cherry drinking game while watching “Hockey Night In Canada”

→ say “zed” instead of “zee” while singing the alphabet

→ spell colour with a “u”

→ make fun of Leaf fans 

→ buy your milk in 1 litre bags not gallons
