Blog every day in July, #1: Canada Day



I found this fun month-long blog challenge and thought I’d join in! You can too over on Allieology. Today’s topic is “Canada Day”. While I’ve never been to Canada, I have at least one blogger friend that resides up that way (hi Em!) and I would like to travel there someday.

I’m not sure if I’d make a good Canadian or not. I think it’d be a split:

Reasons I’d make a good Canadian

  • They say “sorry” a lot, apparently, and I already overuse that word
  • Hockey
  • At least they drive on the right side of the road
  • Britishisms in the language, which are so fun to use.


Reasons I’d make a bad Canadian

  • Cold!
  • Adjusting to new currency
  • No Targets?! (Or at least, I’ve heard that they’re rare)


Would you be a good Canadian or a bad one?

    Canadians always say “about” in such a cute way. I would totally consider living there for a while. Not sure if I would make a good Canadian but I do like hockey!

  • Allie

    Faith never stepped foot inside a Target until she visited Seattle I believe. But at least they do drive on the right side of the road! Thanks for linking up with us :)

  • Faith

    We do have Target! It’s just not as cheap and amazing as it is in the US.
    Also, if you live in a city like Vancouver (where I live).. it’s really not that cold. We might get 1 inch of snow the entire winter ;)
    Also, our currency = so pretty. Not that hard to get used to.

    I’m sure I’d be fine with the currency swap. I got used to euro, after all. And at least they drive on the right side of the road lol. I don’t mind the British spelling of things. I have an adventurous spirit so I could find things to explore there. I say “eh” a lot which apparently is a somewhat Canadian thing. Oh, also more Canadian publications have accepted my poetry and fiction than American ones, so that’s cool.

    Other than that I’m not sure if I would make a good Canadian as I have only been there once and only to one city. I do have a couple friends who live there though, one of whom has told me on a few occasions that I should come live in Canada, so perhaps there would be hope for me. I am not really a fan of being cold though, so I guess I’d have to move to Vancouver.

      I think Vancouver would be really lovely! I wouldn’t want to move any farther north and deal with the cold and snow.

        I haven’t been there but I had seen the comment above mentioning the relative lack of snow lol. I definitely wouldn’t want to be further north either. I moved from Ohio to Florida in part to avoid the snow. Fortunately we’ve had fairly mild winters since I’ve been in Germany. My husband has considered getting stationed in Alaska and I am just not thrilled with the prospect…
