#trending: Because “I. AM. CANADIAN!”

Now that we are officially in the dead of winter, I can’t help but feel a little patriotic. Why wait until July to celebrate being Canadian? After all, we all live in igloos, eh?

I’ve pulled a couple of my favourite canadiana items – both old and new – that make me feel particularly proud. While ¬†some of these pieces may not be as obviously Canadian as hockey hair, long underwear and multi-coloured money, I believe that they are great depictions of our amazing country. Let’s be honest – can you think of ANYTHING better than kicking back in a Muskoka Chair with an ice cold caesar? The correct answer is “No.”

1. Caesar Cocktail, Fact Fixx 2. Totem Cups, Imm Living 3. Leather Sofa, Roots 4. Canoe Shelf, Home Furniture Design Ideas 5. Muskoka Chair, Home Hardware 6. Antique Snow Shoes, Dialogue Over Coffee 7. Linen Pillow, The Bay 8. HBC Coat, The Bay

In the spirit of Canadian pride, I think that it is only fitting to revisit a favourite Molson Canadian commercial; I believe that it sums up our country quite accurately in less than 60 seconds. Here’s to you Canada! I AM CANADIAN
