You know you grew up Canadian when...

I am not the patriotic type as I believe that boarders build barriers to many things and that there are many great places in the world, not just my beautiful country. That being said, I do love being Canadian and I certainly loved growing up in the nineties in Canada. Today I am sharing with you some of the things us Canadian kids grew up with and if you have any to add please share them in the comments!

You know you grew up Canadian when...

1. You spent many winters trying to build an igloo on your front lawn with your friends.

2. The ultimate lunch was kraft dinner anyway you like it.

3. You were never quite certain if the house hippo was real or not.

4. Dressing for school in the winter meant looking like a brightly coloured star fish.

5. If you are anglophone, the only things you know to say in French were taught by a talking pineapple.

6. When Hedley was the biggest band to play at your university campus.

7.  You got so annoyed when an American web-site isn't available in Canada.

8. You had nightmares over Are You Afraid of the Dark?

9. You went to Quebec City with your school and ate maple syrup on snow.

10. Niagara Falls was where you partied on your 10th birthday, 16th birthday, 19th birthday, 21st birthday, bachelorette party etc...

I realize that some of these points are geographically specific (not all Canadians visit Niagara Falls almost every year). If you have any quirky things you did growing up as a kid post them in the comments, I would love to hear about them!

  1. I lived in Michigan for awhile, but I can definitely relate to the igloos and starfish approach to winter! Cute list!
