    When the kids get mad that it hasn’t started snowing yet by Halloween.

    We say “Mmm”, which is more Canadian than saying “Eh”, imo.

    Being a Canadian and living in the USA, I have kept a lot of my Canadian-ism. What stands out most are the different words used; pencil crayon, garburator, runners, pop, etc. I always welcome the snow. I still spell colour the British way I was taught.

    We are Minnesotans who lived in New Mexico. Wow! They have a crazy accent down there. We sure don’t, ha!, but they thought we did …. calling us Canadians all the time. Honestly I think they thought Minnesota was in Canada, eh? Our friend’s little baby Meredith’s first word was WOW with a MN accent thanks to us. All good.

    My baby hasn’t been to Canada, yet. I love BC, as it is easy to visit from Seattle. Can’t wait to take her!

    We LOVE maple syrup in this household!! Maple syrup is replaced for a lot of sugars in recipes we make! πŸ™‚

    We use Maple Syrup on everything. We eat it with breakfast, lunch and dinner and use it as a substitute for sugar in most baking we do as a family.

    We’re proud to tell people where we’re from everywhere we go. Here we are sporting our Roots Canada hoodie on Italy’s Amalfi Coast! Cold weather won’t keep us proud Canadians from hitting the beach on vacation!

    We’re all just really super nice and polite even though we’re from the states. We do have two really truly Canadians in the family though–both by brother and my husband’s brother married girls from Alberta! Crazy, hey?

    I drink Tim Hortons Iced Capps year round and say “eh” way too often… Unfortunately I greatly dislike the frigid cold of our Canadian winters. I never would have thought I had an accent until I spent a year in Texas. WOW, I sure noticed my accent then, and how often I said EH?!

    The only way to ring in the new year is watching the hockey (go Flames) with Timmies in hand! Still trying to lobby to make opening day of hockey season a national holiday. πŸ™‚

    My girls get mad if the maple syrup doesn’t come out for pancakes…or sausage…or bacon…or ham…you know, the works πŸ™‚

    We live in Michigan, which means we have quite the collection of Canadian coins – mostly pennies, but sometimes larger ones sneak in just to vex us at the pop machine.

    My kids will wear their winter hats at any time of year, even in the summer. I find myself saying “eh” way too often for a Pennsylvanian, too.

    Roots, Plaid and the great Canadian outdoors, need I say more?
    We love and embrace being Canadian to the fullest!

    We love our Tim Hortons! And you know my 4 yr old is a tough little Canadian when he puts on shorts and sandals as soon as the snow melts in Spring and is still wearing them now in October! πŸ™‚

  25. October 14, 2014

    Well it helps that we are Canadian so it is easy to act like Canadians πŸ™‚ Yesterday Oct 13th, on Thanksgiving we went on a family hike…note the baby was wearing a toque…and we had Thanksgiving dinner with friends living around us that are also Canadian. It was a good day.

    we are all guilty of apologizing repeatedly, even when things aren’t our fault, or we’ve actually just bumped into an inanimate object, lol

    My family is being Canadian when we swim in an outdoor pool in the mountains in October!
