    I’m very Canadian, and 3 of those nostalgiac item cause me to gag. Nanaimo bars have coconut (hard NO), Tim Hortons is swill, and...The Leafs, who should be called The Leaves. I cannot abide. ; )

    No moose? What kind of stereotypes are those without a moose?

    Nothing to do with Christmas, but just yesterday I talked with a young lady with a Canadian company, who sounded VERY Canadian. Since here in Texas all we now hear are abrasive "New York"-type accents, or hard-to-understand overseas phone operators, I complimented this speaker on her pleasant and sweet accent. It's really quite "musical".

    I began collecting Canadian stamps when i was a kid as it was the most affordable (my concern) and least tacky (grand parent concern) souvenir avaliable at Niagara Falls. The Canada Post Philatelic center is in Nova Scotia, You can still mail in your order, or now place it on line, but I tend to call, as the operators take the time to make chit chat, and are always entertaining. It's been a few years since I ordered any thing, but this years Christmas stamps are quite nice , so I need to take care of that.

    Two Torontonians, behave badly so are consigned to the underworld, the devil walks by their chamber and finds them playing street hockey , "what is this" he demands". "Oh its so warm here we are really enjoying ourselves'. The devil mutters and goes to the control room and cranks up the heat..next time by, the boys are having a barb-q, " so toasty here.. we are loving' it".. Back to the control room, the devil cuts off the heat, and heads back to see what's up, and finds a huge party.. "NOW WHAT? " he demands.. "Oh H--L has frozen over that means the Leafs won the Cup!!"

    One thing I miss and I haven't done in 40 years is to skate on a freshly frozen lake on a moonlit evening with family at Christmas time .

    I am ok with most Canadian stereotypes. But Tim Hortons coffee is sewer water, and their microwaved frozen food is even worse. I'd love to not be a part of that stereotype.

    Used to date a Newfoundlander. Miss salt beef and cabbage with pudding, cod tongues, Screech rum and Jockey Club beer. Fries on George St. after some music at Bridie Molloy's.
