A meaningful post about Canada?!?! Where do I begin! Personally, I LOVE my country. This is a beautiful place to live and I wouldn't leave it for anything. Currently, I'm outside on my patio enjoying the birds, frogs, and the sunshine.

What an AWESOME place to live!

Thanks for the giveaway, Evie! (And please pick me!)

Poutine for sure! Nice people, and amazing cities. I love being Canadian. Thanks for the chance to win this Evie! I am pretty excited to read it.

Tabitha said...

When I think of Canada I think of my friend who's from Canada. She always gets so defensive when someone says something about Canada, and it's become a running joke in my group of friends. Every time we hear Canada we always have to single her out. It's pretty great.

FireStarBooks said...

RED! Wow, that is stupid :3

starryblue said...

I always think about there amazing Rock Bands.

blanshire said...

Ooh maple leaf!

Marmaladelibby (aka Ange) said...

I think of Niagra, of cooler temperatures, of the French language, my pal Giselle at XspressoReads and of Anne of Green Gables! Oh how I loved those movies when I was a teen. (I know they are books too, but the movies are what I watched over and over again.)

Jessica L Buike (AuthorJess and Operation Relax) said...

When I think of Canada, I think of castles - I saw this interesting show about some of the french castles up there! :)

Tiffany Drew said...

Honestly, the first thing I think of when I think of Canada is that Blame Canada song from the South Park movie. I know, I know. But it's catchy and it gets stuck in my head :)

Christine said...

I'd have to be honest and say hockey and maple leaves. Although I am a huge maple syrup fanatic, so I feel much love for Canada for being associated with it. And it seems like a beautiful place to visit, on my bucket list for sure!

Sara Viti said...

The underground cities :)

chani gomes said...

This is an awesome giveaway! Thanks! When i think of Canada i think of maple leaves and Canadian bacon. Also that i don't think i've ever been there because i don't have a passport and would be sad if i was trapped there. Do people in Canada just call it Bacon?

Bookie Bee said...

Maple syrup! Yummy!!

Gaby said...

Honestly Justin Bieber(LOL) an I don't even like him :D

Claire Frith said...

Ice Hockey, Robin from How I Met Your Mother, confusion with Americans. Yes, I believe I need a trip to Canada to sort getting a better list!

Fara said...

I've never been to Canada but when someone mentions CANADA to me, the first thing that comes in mind is when my friend's mother studied there :D

It's A Hardcover Life said...

I wonder if everyone can see Russia from their houses in Canada.

JK. I think about those forest guys in the red suits, hockey and Degrassi

Karana said...

I would love to win this! I have been waiting for the sequel to This Dark Endeavor FOREVER!!! :)

Karana said...

As to Canada, I love travelling and I do it a couple of times of year, but when I'm away it's like I'm waiting to exhale til I come home. No matter where I am and how cool the place is somewhere inside me is always waiting to come home to Canada. It's the dumbest thing but when I see that Tim Hortons ad on the luggage pick up that says Welcome Home only then do I feel ok and breathe again.

Alicia Lafrance said...

My favorite friends were Canadian while I was living in Korea. Nicest people alive!

kristy1504 said...

Wow. Okay well when I think of my country, I think we are the luckiest people on the planet. I feel so safe here and I'm so proud to call it home. As much as I may want to move to another country when I'm older, another part of me is shaking my head and saying "Why would you want to leave?" As Karana said above, as weird as this sounds, the Tim Hortons in the airports are something that will always make me feel like I'm home!
